Summer is prime time movie watching season as studios release their latest blockbusters and crowds take refuge from the scorching summer sun in cool, air conditioned theaters. For those seeking a bit more culture in their summer cinematic excursions, join Samuel Lynne Galleries for their 3rd annual Summer Film Night series.
The gallery, which is dedicated to igniting minds, fueling creativity, and providing inspiration, has selected three features films and documentaries that impart a greater understanding and enjoyment of modern and contemporary art through film.
The three Thursday evening showings will take place in the gallery’s cozy HD Theater, and incorporate discussions led by gallery co-owner, JD Miller. Patrons are invited to enjoy wine provided by Eatzi’s and popcorn by Uptown Popcorn.
The series kicks off this Thursday, June 9th with The Rape of Europa, a film that uses an interview format to tell the story of Nazi pillaging during WWII. Eyewitnesses, historians, and newsreel footage tells the story of young art historians and curators who worked to save the art through the evacuation of pieces and strategic mapping of air strikes, and the eventual return of the art to families of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
Go ahead and save the date for the debut of Pollock on July 14th and Le mystère Picasso (Mystery of Picasso), which will be screened on August 11th.
