  • June 21
  • 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


WAM and Tallgrass Film Association join together for the 7th annual outdoor movie night. “Moonrise Kingdom” is the seventh film directed by two-time The Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson. Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, “Moonrise Kingdom” tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing offshore. The lazy idyll of a summer island community is turned upside down in every which way. Featuring actors Bruce Willis _, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Jason Schwartzman.

Admission is FREE. Bring your lawn chairs, Frisbees, and high-school spirit, as we frolic to celebrate the joys of the Kansas sultry summer eve. Food trucks, including The Flying Stove – Gourmet Street Cuisine, Kona Ice Greater Wichita, Nora’s Kitchen and Smokin Diner; cash bar by The Muse Cafe; and live music by the Haymakers. Lamphouse Photo Booth Co. will be on site providing fun and whimsical selfies.
