The Eudora Welty House and Garden and the Mississippi Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America are teaming up to host a mini Jane Austen film festival in 2016. The outdoor film series will be held in the Welty Garden and will feature three film versions of Jane Austen novels. Outdoor movie enthusiasts are invited to bring their blankets and picnics, and enjoy movies as Pride and Prejuice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility.
The film series is planned for three Fridays in 2016: May 13th, September 9th, and October 14th. (Rain dates and/or alternate locations will also be publicized.) Filmgoers are invited to arrive ahead of the showing to enjoy the Welty garden, find their viewing spots, and partake of concessions.
