St Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome 3D

In cinemas 18 June 2016

PARTICIPATING CINEMAS


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.

Florence and the Uffizi Gallery

In cinemas 21 November!

Participating Cinemas

‘Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D/4K: a journey into the heart of the Renaissance’ is much more than a classic Art documentary: it’s a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory journey into the Italian Renaissance through the most beautiful, representative works of art of the period.

For the first time in cinema theaters worldwide comes an art film on the veritable open-air museum that is the city of Florence in which 3D technology ensures a totally immersive, unprecedented viewing experience: works of art speak for themselves with all the power of their extraordinary beauty enhanced by 3D vision.

A stimulating “emotional” commentary is given by a major, leading Renaissance figure, our guide Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells.  From a timeless limbo, he takes us through a tour of “his” Florence, the cradle of Renaissance culture, all to the splendid accompaniment of carefully selected music. Also featured are valuable artistic contributions made by experts such as Antonio Natali, the Director of the Uffizi Gallery for almost 10 years; Marco Ciatti, Superintendent of the ‘Opificio delle Pietre Dure’ and Arturo Galansino, Director of Palazzo Strozzi.

Not only does this Art Film promise a unique 3D/4K viewing experience but it also offers an emotionally moving and engaging narrative.
