This summer Cornell Cinema will present four classic films outdoors on the Willard Straight Terrace, all with a cash bar, complimentary snacks and a great view! Doors will open at 8:15pm and films will start at 9:30pm. In the event of rain, screenings will be held in Willard Straight Theatre.

Tickets are $13/$11 students & seniors and can be purchased in advance online at These tickets will be held at the “will call” table for pickup the night of the show. Any tickets unclaimed by 9:15pm may be resold. Terrace shows typically sell-out in advance, so patrons are encouraged to plan accordingly!

New this year: drawings for three pairs of Cornell Cinema guest passes will be held at each of the four shows. For more information call (607) 255-3522.
