Inspired by their current exhibition, Hollie Brown: Resting Places, which addresses themes of exploration - through collecting objects and moments, BLUEorange Contemporary will show Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, an adventure of two odd-ball pre-teens running away and finding love.

B.Y.O.B. (Bring your own blanket, sleeping bag, camping chairs, etc.) Camping snacks, beverages, and folding chairs will be provided.

The year is 1965, and the residents of New Penzance, an island off the coast of New England, inhabit a community that seems untouched by some of the bad things going on in the rest of the world. Twelve-year-olds Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) have fallen in love and decide to run away. But a violent storm is approaching the island, forcing a group of quirky adults (Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray) to mobilize a search party and find the youths before calamity strikes.
