Check Out Meryl Streep In ‘Mamma Mia’ For Free This Weekend At The International Museum Of Art
I'm a big fan of the International Museum of Art. Not only is it a Trost-designed gem in El Paso, it is home to free art exhibits and, every Saturday afternoon, it hosts classic movies on the big screen.
This weekend, you can check out Meryl Streep singing and dancing her guts out to iconic ABBA songs in 'Mamma Mia'. The story follows Meryl's character, a former singer who now runs a little hotel on a Greek island, who is getting ready for her only daughter's wedding. The daughter wants her father to walk her down the aisle, but she doesn't know who he is. Neither does her mom because she had, ahem, relations with three different men around the same time.
Put aside the mild ick factor and just revel in the fun of the songs, Meryl Streep acting like a nut, and the rest of the cast trying to belt out what are, surprisingly, pretty tough songs to belt out.
Don't forget to have some ridiculously well-priced snacks with the movie, and then after, head upstairs to check out the free exhibits and the beautiful interior of the museum.
