Take a break from the Texas heat and join the Modern and Lone Star Film Society for Modern Kids—Summer Flicks! Share the art of the screen with your children as they watch stories unfold and ideas form in delightful and innovative films. The bonus for seeing these films at the Modern is the opportunity to visit the galleries before or after and experience the wonder of the paintings, sculptures, installations, and videos throughout the museum.
Make a full day of creative activities at the Modern. Beautiful sketchbooks for children of all ages are free at the information desk—the perfect partner to the films in this Summer Flicks Series.
Admission is free and open to the public. Films are shown in the Modern’s auditorium, and seating is limited to the first 250 guests.
10:30–11 am (Ages 3-7)
See a selection of animated films that celebrate much loved storybook classics. After the films, attendees will receive a workbook that will grant them free access to the Modern's galleries and give them the opportunity to participate in an interactive daily activity.
