Get ready for some end-of-summer frights because the MFA Boston is hosting a free, outdoor screening of “Get Out” later this month.
In partnership with the Roxbury International Film Festival, the museum will show Jordan Peele’s critically-acclaimed horror movie on Sept.14. The latest installment of the MFA Film’s Sunset Cinema series will take place on the lawn located by Huntington Avenue.
Attendees will also get the chance to play a few lawn games, make some art and enjoy music by DJ YVNG PAVL, starting at 6 p.m. Beer, wine and other goodies will be available to purchase as well, and guests are welcome to bring blankets, low chairs, picnic food and nonalcoholic beverages with them.
The actual screening of “Get Out” will take place at sunset, around 8 p.m. that evening.
“Get Out” stars Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, a photographer who has the worst meet-the-parents encounter with his new girlfriend Rose, played by Allison Williams. The film is both a frightening thriller as well as a commentary on race and social issues.
Metro’s review of “Get Out” called Peele’s directorial debut a movie that “nailed how you pace a slow-burn horror number, how you use camera placement to elicit chills, how you turn a real-world drama into something far more insane” and a “terrifying chiller.”
Try not to get too scared when the flick screens for free at the museum later this month.
