The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s Modernism + Film program investigates themes in design, engineering, architecture and modern/contemporary art through the lens of film. Developed in partnership with the Charlotte chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, the Modernism + Film series is offered monthly (except for December) and includes introductions to the films by scholars, urban planners, architects, art historians, film experts and others.


An event reception with a bar serving beer, wine and liquor and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. Tickets are $10 for the public, $8 for museum members and $5 for students. (Student tickets may be purchased at the door or by phone. Must present student ID to claim.) Purchase tickets online, by phone 704.353.9200 or at the admission desk.
