EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: HOPPER
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2022 AT 6:30
Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?

This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships.

From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush...

Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.

Released to coincide with the major Hopper exhibition (Edward Hopper’s New York) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (Oct 22 – Mar 23).

Directed by Phil Grabsky. Running time 90 minutes.

No passes or value cards accepted. Tickets are $14.00 and may be purchased at the Avon Cinema box office starting 3 weeks before the event.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: CEZANNE: PORTRAITS OF A LIFE
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2022 AT 6:30
Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to be bringing back one of its most successful ever films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne.

One cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne.

Filmed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from MoMA in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists.

Released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at Tate Modern (Oct 22 – Mar 23).

“... a film that thoroughly repays careful listening and looking”
–The Guardian

Directed by Phil Grabsky. Running time 85 minutes.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: LEONARDO: THE WORKS
TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2023 AT 6:30
Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favorite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo The Works, as EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen.

Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others. This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life - his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day - through the prism of his art.

This film was released in October 2019 on the 500th anniversary of his death, and is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.

Directed by Phil Grabsky. Running time 85 minutes.

No passes or value cards accepted. Tickets are $14.00 and may be purchased at the Avon Cinema box office starting 3 weeks before the event.
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: MARY CASSATT: PAINTING THE MODERN WOMAN
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 2023 AT 6:30
Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.

Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often- overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted.

She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art.

The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.

Directed by Ali Ray. Running time 93 minutes.

No passes or value cards accepted. Tickets are $14.00 and may be purchased at the Avon Cinema box office starting 3 weeks before the event.

“We would not have thought it possible that so many museums are willing to lend their masterpieces. With this exhibition we can introduce a new generation to Vermeer’s paintings…”
-Taco Dibbits, Director of the Rijksmuseum

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: TOKYO STORIES
TUESDAY, MAY 23, 2023 AT 6:30
A thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals.

Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.

The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself, and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.

A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet...

“Tokyo has a powerful engine that just doesn’t stop. There is an energy, a particular floating power in Tokyo. Whatever happens, this city gets rebuilt again and continues to move forwards.” -Machida Kumi
