The series is called Interior Luxe: Art Deco in Three Films. It is connected to the museum’s current exhibit on Art Deco, a style popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

It is characterized by bold lines, stark color contrast and lavish worlds, often seen in films from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

For three Sundays in August, the theater will present “Grand Hotel”, “Flying Down to Rio” and “The Wizard of Oz”.

“It’s really interesting to know the history of where these defining styles come from. You know, I think people, especially today, there are so many adaptations and remakes of old Hollywood classics. And you must know where it comes from, I think. I think it’s exciting,” said Diana Martinez, artistic director of Film Streams.

You can buy tickets at Film Streams website or at any of the Film Streams locations.

Joslyn’s art deco exhibit runs through September 5. Tickets are free for museum members and $10 for the general public.
