The Palm Springs Art Museum will be screening free films every Thursday evening in their Annenberg Theater during this summer. The first 10 films to be shown are part of 2012 Global Lens series, organized by the Global Lens Initiative. The Global Lens series seeks to screen films from countries that are not typically known for filmmaking and feature new directors. This Thursday August 2, the film “Toll Booth,” from Turkey will be screened.
“Toll Booth,” is the story of an aloof tool booth attendant that is assigned to a desolate country road and begins a flirtatious relationship with a woman who drives by each day.
“Toll Booth” is not rated, is presented in Turkish with English subtitles and a run time of 1 hour and 36 minutes.
Place: The Palm Springs Art Museum, Annenberg Theater, 101 North Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262
Time: seating begins at 4 p.m. and the film starts at 6 p.m.
Seats are available on a first come, first served basis.
Next week, the featured film will be “Duck Soup” as part of the Summer 2012 Classic Comedies Series sponsored by the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cell phones & no texting, please don’t talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don’t forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
