Join KCRW’s Matt Holzman for a free outdoor screening of the classic 1968 musical film Oliver! as part of the Orange County Performing arts Center’s Free for All Movie Mondays series.

The winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, Oliver! is one of the most acclaimed stage-to-screen adaptations. Following a young orphan’s misadventures in the slums of 19th Century London, the Charles Dickens story is made all the more glorious by its unforgettable music.

Rated G, 1968, 2 hours and 33 minutes

Guests are encouraged to bring beach chairs or other easily portable seating items. Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m. with the movie starting at dusk (approximately 8 p.m.). In a continuing partnership with the Newport Beach Film Festival, a selection of the best short animated films from this year’s festival will be shown prior to the main feature. Guests may bring their own snacks and picnic suppers. Patina Catering will have assorted snacks and beverages available for purchase. Barbecues and similar food preparation will not be permitted. Come along … and consider yourself “One of Us!”
