The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to bring back for the second straight year the Journeys in Art History film series. The series will begin in January with an encore of a beloved film from last year and continues with three brand new films each month through April. The focus of the series is to introduce the works of history’s greatest painters and to provide opportunities to view blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries worldwide.
The series opens with an encore of last year’s hit, the vivid Exhibition on Screen film, VINCENT VAN GOGH: A NEW WAY OF SEEING on Tuesday, January 30 at 1:30 PM. All screenings take place at the Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa).
Explore the dramatic story and iconic work of the world’s most beloved artist, Vincent Van Gogh. With exclusive original research revealing incredible new discoveries, the Van Gogh Museum has helped craft a cinema experience like no other and a fresh and gripping biography. Enjoy complete and unprecedented access to the treasures of the museum which includes a major re-showing of the gallery’s collection and a celebration of the recent 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death. The director, David Bickerstaff says, “What this film can do is give people time to actually sit with the works, to digest information, to go on a bit of a journey into lesser-known parts of his life – I think there are a lot of surprises. The cinema will immerse you.” [2015, UD, Runtime: 90 minutes, NR].
