Architecture in the Movies

These cinematic classics reveal how modern architecture not only helps to shape a film's overall sensibility and psychological mood, but also plays a crucial part within the narrative. From the instantly recognizable to the spectacularly imagined, from epic cityscapes to stylish interiors, these beautifully filmed architectural spaces intrigue, inform, or even bemuse the viewer. Offered in partnership with the Lone Star Film Society.
