The museum will offer free films this summer in the Annenberg Theater every Thursday at 6 p.m. from May 31 through Sept. 6. The first ten films will be the 2012 Global Lens series of films, organized by the Global Film Initiative. This series showcases films from countries not typically associated with film making, and features young and upcoming directors. This year, the Global Lens series includes films from Albania, Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Iran, Iraq, Morocco, Turkey, and Rwanda. This is the fourth year the museum has screened the Global Lens series.

Following these ten foreign films, the museum has teamed up with the Palm Springs International Film Society to offer five Classic Comedies. This is the second year that the museum and the Film Society have offered films as a joint partnership.

There is no cost to attend the films and seats are available on a first come, first serve basis. The museum is open on Thursday nights with free admission between 4-8 p.m. and is always 75 degrees, which offers a great way to stay cool while enjoying high quality films.
