Family Flicks Film Series

UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets for assigned seating in the Billy Wilder Theater are required and available at the Box Office one hour before each program. Early arrival is recommended. Tickets are available one per person on a first come, first served basis. 

As a benefit for their support, members enjoy priority ticketing and seat selection, subject to availability.

Parking is available under the museum for a flat rate of $3 on weekends. 

Hammer Kids and Family Flicks are made possible, in part, through the generosity of supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), a family fundraiser. Additional support is provided by the Westwood Neighborhood Council.
