St Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome

In cinemas 18 June 2016


Experience unveiled treasures in the year of the Extraordinary Jubilee.

The creators of Florence and the Uffizi Gallery take you on a journey through the four Papal Basilicas in Rome and their treasures: St Peter’s, St John in the Lateran, St Mary Major and St Paul Outside the Walls. Four majestic buildings – each with a precious papal altar, each a treasure trove of timeless works of art and a destination for millions of travelers and pilgrims over the centuries – play the leading role in this cinematic tour de force, while state of the art technology captures amazing images from completely new and exclusive points of view.

Join world renown experts who will discuss the basilicas; their evolution over the centuries, their most famous works of art, the lives and stories of the Popes and artists – from Giotto to Bramante, from Michelangelo to Francesco Borromini, from Bernini to Domenico Fontana, from Arnolfo di Cambio to Jacopo Torriti – the events that made these places immortal, and the profound spirituality emanating from them.





A Beethoven Journey

Coming to cinemas in 2016!



Filmed over the course of four years award-winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes’s attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos.

Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers rare insights into the mind of a world-class pianist and access to his personal and professional life.  Against the wonderful background of Leif Ove playing these five pieces, we also peel back the many myths of Beethoven’s life from prodigious talent in Vienna, to greatest composer alive by the time he wrote the fifth concerto.  Perhaps above all it is the fresh new biography of Beethoven that is most revealing.



Leonardo da Vinci – The Genius in Milan

In cinemas 23 April 2016!

List of participating cinemas


At the end of the fifteenth century, Leonardo da Vinci spent eighteen years in Milan – a period that would leave a lasting impression on the city.

In Spring 2015, Milan paid tribute to Leonardo by holding a large exhibition at the Palazzo Reale. Based on this stunning exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci – The Genius in Milan uses a combination of documentary interviews and mise-en-scènes to tell the story of the artist’s world and the treasures he left us, against the stunning backdrop of Leonardo’s Milan.

Drawing upon Leonardo’s legendary work as an artist, architect and scientist, audiences will be immersed in the story of Leonardo the man, in the context of what was a truly legendary period in the city’s history, and for the history of art.

National Theatre Live: Hangmen

From 14 May, 2016

OLIVIER AWARD WINNER – BEST NEW PLAY!

★★★★★
‘The best new play of the year.’ – Daily Telegraph

★★★★★
‘Deliriously funny.’ – Sunday Times

Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging?

Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.





Exhibition on Screen – Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse

From the Royal Academy of Arts, London. In cinemas 28 May 2016.

Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art but he was not alone. Artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative exhibition from The Royal Academy, London.



Exhibition on Screen- Renoir: Revered and Reviled

From the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia. In cinemas 16 April 2016.

He is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet one of the most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist. Matisse revered him. Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and went in a completely new direction – with extraordinary results. The Barnes Collection in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other gallery in the world and it’s there that the search begins to tell the remarkable story of this remarkable artist.



Exhibition on Screen – Goya: Visions of Flesh and Blood

From the National Gallery, London. In cinemas 26 March 2016.

Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter and social commentator par excellence. Goya takes the genre of portraiture to new heights and his genius is reappraised in a landmark exhibition at The National Gallery, London. Through a great collection of unique works and Goya’s letters, we reflect upon the man himself and the world he painted. Goya is an artist whose powerful vision and technical prowess makes him one of the most admired icons of the artistic world.
