Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars to Play on Boyd Plaza


Program: Ziggy Stardust on Boyd Plaza

On closing day of That ’70s Show: Cool Art from the Collection, the Columbia Museum of Art is excited to offer a screening on Boyd Plaza of the 1973 film Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, showcasing David Bowie’s final performance in the titular role. Like the exhibition, the legendary rockumentary offers a complicated portrait of art and identity in the 1970s.

“What better way to celebrate the ’70s than with David Bowie on the big screen?” says Joelle Ryan-Cook, CMA deputy director and director of external affairs. “We’re planning an evening packed with activities you can enjoy with friends and family and relax outside right here on Main Street.”

Before the film, check out the exhibition one last time and enjoy a music-themed tour, a set from DJ Preach Jacobs, drinks from the Whig, and food from the Wurst Wagen. Bring a chair and enjoy the screening with free popcorn.

$5 / free for members.
