Philbrook museum is revamping the decades-long Philbrook Films on the Lawn series.

The 2013 series is guest curated by Oklahoma native and Academy Award nominated director Terrence Malick.

The series kicks off Friday, July 5 with Humphrey Bogart and Tulsa native Jennifer Jones in John Huston’s Truman Capote-scripted 1953 noir, "Beat the Devil."

Followed on July 12th by Preston Sturges’ 1941 screwball comedy, "The Lady Eve" and on July 19th by Ben Stiller’s modern cult classic "Zoolander," the series wraps up with a special 40th anniversary screening of Malick’s debut feature, "Badlands" starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek on July 26.

Philbrook also asked local food trucks to be on-site for the four films starting on July 5th with Lola’s Caravan, Andolini’s on July 12th, Lone Wolf Bahn Mi on July 19th, and Brownie’s on July 26th.

Guests can also sign up for a chance to win the newly restored and re-mastered release of “Badlands” courtesy of series sponsor, The Criterion Collection.

Admission is $5 for Philbrook Members and $7 Not-yet Members. Gates open at 7:30pm, films begin at dusk. In the event of rain, films will be screened the following Sunday at 2pm in the Patti Johnson Wilson Hall.
