Boasting the perfect atmosphere for the arts, the San Antonio Museum of Art enriches lives through exceptional experiences with art. This summer, the San Antonio Museum of Art is proud to present a Film on the Green, a summer film series. On Friday, August 30th, the series will screen Superman II.
During Superman II, the meta-human heritage of the Last Son of Krypton is tested as never before when a series of misadventures unlocks in Superman a very human emotion: love. Superman's love for journalist Lois Lane reaches a seemingly impossible peak but requires the ultimate sacrifice. As the incompatible molecular structure of Kal-El (Superman's birth name) and Lois would gravely complicate the inevitable bearing of children, Kal-El must be purged of his superpower, to live as a mortal.
Kal-El, despite the pleas of the spirit of his long-lost mother, willingly agrees, and now a normal human being consummates his love for Lois. But, this decision dooms the Earth, as three criminals from Krypton, freed from their extra-dimensional prison, lay waste to the planet in a path of conquest aided by the planet's most arrogant criminal, Lex Luthor. Luthor intends to smoke out Superman for his destruction, unaware of The Man Of Steel's helplessness, a condition that only one last hope can rectify.
Film on the Green is an outdoor film series in collaboration with Slab Cinema. Offering movie screen rentals, Slab Cinema aims to build a sense of community through outdoor movies.
