Exhibitions on Screen: I, Claude Monet
Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 6:30 PM


From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favorite artist – through his own words.

Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his humor, insight and love of life is revealed.

Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

All seats for Exhibition On Screen special events are $13.00. No Passes, Value Cards or Gift Cards will be honored. Tickets are available at the door.

Exhibitions on Screen: American Impressionism
Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 6:30


Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia – the birthplace of the American garden movement & the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut – widely considered the home of American impressionism.

American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Traveling to studios, gardens and treasured locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerizing film is a feast for the eyes.

All seats for Exhibition On Screen special events are $13.00. No Passes, Value Cards or Gift Cards will be honored. Tickets are available at the door.

Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the Caucasus, on a path set by his passionate encounters. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts pain upon himself and the women around him…

“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” The story based on the larger-than-life hero Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece in three separate stories recounting his heartbreaking betrayals. Is Pechorin a real hero? Or is he a man like any other? This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.

Exhibitions on Screen: Michelangelo: Love and Death
Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 6:30


To coincide with a glorious new exhibition at the National Gallery of London, this film offers a full and fresh biography of Michelangelo who, with Leonardo, is considered one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time. This film explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice that included painting, sculpture and architecture. Among the works explored are the universally adored David in Florence, the Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna (today at the National Gallery).

This major new film goes to the heart of just who was this tempestuous, passionate giant of art history.
