If you’re looking for a cool place to escape the hot El Paso temperatures this weekend, consider taking in a movie at the International Museum of Art.

Not only is the movie free to see, so is admission to the museum itself. The movies are carefully curated family favorites and timeless classics screened in the beautiful 168 seat auditorium inside the historic Henry Trost building the International Museum of Art calls home.

There's going to be a free movie shown every Saturday afternoon in June, hosted by life long film fan, historian and collector Jay Duncan in association with Sunset Film Society. Movies start at approximately 2:00 p.m. Theater popcorn, drinks, candy and snacks will be available for purchase.

The International Museum of Art, which located at 1211 Montana in the Turney Mansion, features artwork by local and national artists, as well as exhibits and artifacts from Africa and Asia.
