MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Walker Art Center is inviting families on the first Saturday of every month this summer to hear local music, do art and watch films – all for free.

The museum released details on its Free First Saturday Family Summer Series on Monday. The events start next month and continue through September.

Each event will have a local band performing at the Walker Cinema at 11 a.m. and then a family-friendly movie at 1 p.m. In between, parents and kids will be able to tour the museum, make art and do other activities. Gallery admission will be free.

The June program, entitled “Classical Twist,” will feature the band Lulu’s Playground and screen the Oscar-nominated animated film “Ernest & Celestine.” Other programs in the series are titled “Groovy Adventures” (July) and “Folk-Tails” (September).

Musicians slated to play in the series include Brian Laidlaw and the Family Trade, Bunny Clogs and Black Market Brass. The other films to be screened are “Birds of Passage,” “Zafara” and “Belle and Sebastian,” the audience favorite from last year’s Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival.
