Thursday, February 16th
Experience the U.K. National Gallery's sold-out, once-in-a-lifetime exhibition 'Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan' at your local movie theater in limited screenings only from February 16, 2012.
"The show is dazzling, mysterious and disturbing. That there are any paintings to show at all is something of a miracle" says the Guardian in its review of the gallery presentation. Five stars -- "a breathtaking and truly remarkable exhibition", "the greatest exhibition of the century" raves the Telegraph.
Crowds in the U.K. have been queuing every day from dawn to snatch the few remaining tickets to the gallery. Tickets have been re-selling for $700 apiece.
In a first for movie audiences, the big-screen presentation of 'Leonardo Live' gives art lovers the world over the opportunity to share in the excitement of viewing the unprecedented and historic exhibition, in the comfort of their local movie theater. The exhibition brings together the largest ever number of da Vinci's paintings, including a new, never-before-seen Leonardo painting. The program was captured on the eve of the exhibition opening in November 2011 -- the cinema screenings in February will feature extra content.
'Leonardo Live' is presented by art historian Tim Marlow and presenter Mariella Frostrup, who will explore the exhibition and feature detailed examinations of the paintings and interviews with special guests and experts.
