About the Film:
The Thief Collector | Director Allison Otto
It was one of the most audacious and puzzling art thefts of a generation; In 1985, Willem de Kooning’s seminal work, “Woman Ochre,” was sliced from its frame and stolen from the walls of an Arizona art museum, disappearing into the desert. Over thirty years later, in a remote town in New Mexico, the $160 million dollar painting was rediscovered in the unlikeliest of places.
Location & Arrival Info:

The parking lot opens at 6:30PM, and RMWF encourages attendees to “tailgate” and socialize before the film program begins promptly at 7:15PM. Get settled in your vehicle, turn the radio up, and enjoy a great film on a great big screen under the stars. Alternatively, and weather permitting, we will set up a speaker system for sound, so bring a camp chair and layers to enjoy the film al fresco. Click here for more details about Drive In Cinema.
