Staff Pick: GenWex's Peronis on the Plaza

The Wexner Center's been celebrating the Italian lifestyle all summer with its Cinema Italiano series, a selection of films either made in Italy or featuring the country. This week, they're adding one crucial ingredient to the mix - ice-cold Peronis. Show up early to sip Peroni (cash bar), eat wood-fired pizza, listen to '70s Italian disco and do some networking on the Wex's plaza. Stick around for a free double-feature and, as always, free Jeni's ice cream and Pam's popcorn. At 7 p.m., Vittorio De Sica's 1952 classic "Umberto D" screens in the Film/Video Theater, and Anthony Minghella's gorgeously creepy "The Talented Mr. Ripley," this week's Wex Drive-In flick, starts outside at dusk.

5 p.m. Thursday, July 15
