An opening reception begins at 5 p.m. At 7:50 p.m., “Call Me By Your Name,” a 2017 LGBT coming-of-age movie about a teen in love with his father’s assistant, is shown. It won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay by James Ivory.

On Saturday at 4 p.m., the movie is “The Last Prosecco,” a 2017 comic mystery about the death of a winemaker. The film's producer, Alessia Gatti, will lead a post-film discussion. An Italian wine dinner in the museum café, with food by Mill Restaurant Group, follows the movie.

“Hotel Gagarin,” a 2017 comedy about an Italian film crew stranded in Armenia, is shown Sunday at 2 p.m. A tour of the museum’s Italian works of art begins at 1:15 p.m.
