Screenings Tuesdays, 9, 16 and 23 July, 7 p.m.

When not in the mood for painting, Edward Hopper (1882–1967) said, ‘I go to the movies for a week or more. I go on a regular movie binge’. Whether as an escape from his work or (as most scholars argue) an influence, Hopper’s penchant for cinema has forged a lasting link between his canvases and the silver screen. In conjunction with the Whitney’s current ‘Hopper Drawing’ , this summer film series will mine the spectrum of period films Hopper viewed or referenced. Visit   for the complete screening schedule.

Free admission. Reservations recommended.
