Watch an outdoor viewing of Emma!

FilmScene and proudly announces FilmScene in the Park, an outdoor cinema built in partnership with the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department located at Chauncey Swan Park. The inaugural season of curated programming will include five acclaimed films from the last year and six family-friendly selections in partnership with the Summer of the Arts Free Movie Series.

Admission is free and open to the public. Seating will be first-come-first-served for all screenings, with movies beginning at sunset. Health and safety protocols will be in place including social distancing aided by painted markers on the lawn. The city-wide mask mandate will be enforced when moviegoers are not eating or drinking.


Jane Austen's beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless "queen bee" without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.
