What could be better than going to see a movie in a theater? What about going to see a movie in a totally unexpected place, like a ballpark, a bowling alley, a newspaper press room, or a catacomb deep under the city?

We created our Roving Cinema series to take films outside the four walls of a theater. Sure, as movie nerds, we all love the theater experience, but we also welcome the chance to appreciate some of our favorite films in cool places. In the process, we can crack open a cold beer, catch up with an old friend, and maybe even visit some place we’ve never been.


Was it Professor Plum in the Library with the Candlestick?
Or Mrs. Peacock in the Ballroom with the Revolver?

You’ll find out Thursday, April 20, when we present a special screening of CLUE where you’ll play along with the action in this classic Whodunnit?! Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted by our friendly, albeit mysterious, butler who will give you your player card for the evening. With several intermissions, you and your friends will move from the “Ballroom” to the “Library” to the “Study” to the “Conservatory” and finally to the “Great Hall” collecting your weapon and room cards as you make your way through four unique screening room experiences inside the Athenaeum. At the end of the movie, if you’re in possession of the winning set of playing cards — player/weapon/room — you’ll take home a CLUEY prize package. Check in and seating will begin at 7pm with the screening beginning at 7:30pm. This is an all ages show, and seating will be provided.
