AARP is proud to co-present Lawn, an immersive installation at the National Building Museum. You are invited to experience this lush indoor landscape at a special, free Movies for Grownups screening of My Girl.


My Girl: Eleven-year-old Vada's (Anna Chlumsky) world is turned upside down when her widowed mortician father Harry (Dan Aykroyd) decides to marry cosmetologist Shelly (Jamie Lee Curtis). Vada is a small-town tomboy who spends most of her time playing with her best friend (Macaulay Culkin), and worrying that she has contracted the ailments of her father's most recent customers. (Rated PG for thematic elements. Audio assistance is unavailable for this screening.)

Please note:

  • This is an INDOOR event and therefore is not contingent on the weather. 
  • Doors open at 7:00 PM and the movie starts at 8:00 PM. Guests are invited to explore all of the museum exhibits prior to the movie at no charge!
  • Outside food and drink are not permitted. There will be snacks available for purchase.
