Films on the Lawn

Since the early 1970s, Philbrook Films on the Lawn has been a beloved Tulsa tradition.

This year, Films on the Lawn is back on-site, and we are dedicated to keeping things as safe and fun as ever! Gather with us on the Philbrook Lawn for a magical summer of films, fun activities, Kitchen 27’s Burger Night, and more!

Thanks to our Title Sponsor, Fowler Automotive.

Setup

  • We can’t predict the weather, but we can be prepared! If you select a blanket-only seating area (front half of the Film Lawn closer to the screen), consider bringing a tarp or other water-resistant material along in case the ground is damp. All spot seating is chair-friendly. Bring your own chairs and blankets.
  • Rain Plan: In case of rain or other inclement weather, the film may be cancelled. Ticket-holders will be notified via email and will have one week from the date of the event to contact Philbrook at 918-748-5300 to exchange film tickets for another film, upcoming event, or apply the funds toward a Membership. All sales are final.

Q:

Is the Film Lawn accessible?

A:

Yes, our Film Lawn is accessible for those using a wheelchair or mobility device. However, the path from the museum building to the lawn involves somewhat steep ramps and uneven pathway surfaces, and the mobility device will need to go onto the grass for film viewing. After the film concludes, guests must exit the Gardens by way of a steep hill. Golf cart rides are available by request for those with mobility needs before and after the film.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available to our guests at no charge and on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have questions or for more information about accessible parking and accommodation, please contact us at 918-748-5300 in advance of your visit.
