- Gibbes Film in Focus: A Streetcar Named Desire
- Gibbes Film in Focus is a three-part pilot film series that will expand the Museum’s diverse array of educational programming to include filmmaking, offering a safe place to watch great movies in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. To use film as an entry point for engaging people in the power of art and storytelling, the series will also promote culturally significant works by women filmmakers and filmmakers of color. Adapted from Tennessee William’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 play of the same name, “A Streetcar Named Desire,” directed by Elia Kazan tells the story of a southern belle, Blanche DuBois, after encountering a series of personal losses, leaves her aristocratic background seeking refuge with her sister and brother-in-law in a dilapidated New Orleans apartment building.
- Price: $10 adults, $5 students/faculty
