LAM at Home

Film Night

While the museum is not hosting on-site programs, our staff are working remotely to offer art and inspiration online. We believe that art has the power to connect us, and we hope that you will enjoy new ways to stay connected with the museum – your museum.

LAM’s monthly film program, designed to complement the museum’s mission and explore the art and culture of California, is organized into four categories: contemporary films, documentaries, artists’ picks, and classics. We invite you to browse our recent picks and use your favorite subscriptions to stream a film at home.
