The Gem’s Outdoor Theater

6:00pm Social Hour

7:00pm Film

Join BAAM and The Gem for the last Art on Screen film of the summer. We will hold this event in the Outdoor Theater! We are very excited to show the film The Painter and the Thief, a Sundance Special Jury Prize Winner in 2020.
“When two paintings by Czech naturalist Barbora Kysilkova are stolen from an Oslo art gallery, Norwegian authorities quickly identify and arrest the two thieves, but find no trace of the paintings. Hoping to learn what happened, Barbora approaches one of the thieves, Karl-Bertil Nordland, at his criminal hearing. She asks if she can paint his portrait and, contrite, he agrees. What follows—over a series of portraits and many years—is an extraordinary story of human connection and friendship.” – Sundance Institute
We hope you can join us early for the social hour. We’ll have the pizza oven on and a specialty cocktail to enjoy before the show! Please bring a lawn chair and blanket with you to enjoy the show outside!
