Exhibit onScreen Series: THE VATICAN MUSEUM 3D (Specticast)

For the very first time Ultra HD 4K/3D film cameras have been allowed inside the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, bringing never before seen art to theaters across the US.

The Vatican Museums 3D is a mega-production by a team of 40 professionals who travelled hundreds of miles in the cultural setting of the Vatican Museums while filming some of the most rare and precious works of art in the world, spanning all civilizations and epochs. Thanks to a combination of the cutting-edge 3D techniques used for cinema by James Cameron and Tim Burton, audiences can now fully immerse themselves in the timeless masterpieces of art history. Admire the paintings of Caravaggio, touch Laocoön and the Belvedere Torso, and feel swathed by the figures in the Sistine Chapel.

From the outstanding artistry of classic statues to the Cast of Michelangelo’s Pietà, right up to Fontana’s modern sculptures; from paintings by Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Van Gogh, Chagall and Dalì; from the extraordinary frescos in the Rooms of Raphael to the spectacular work by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel, theater audiences will experience the journey under the artful guidance of the Director of the Vatican Museums, Professor Antonio Paolucci, who expertly leads us through the past, present and future.

Globe onScreen Series: THE COMEDY OF ERRORS (Arts Alliance)

Directed by: Blanche McIntyre

Designer: James Cotterill , Composer: Olly Fox

Cast: Stefan Adegbola, Andy Apollo, Paul Brendan, Linda Broughton, Gershwyn Eustache Jr, Becci Gemmell, Peter Hamilton Dyer, Simon Harrison, Emma Jerrold, Hattie Ladbury, James Laurenson, Matthew Needham, Anne Odeke, Brodie Ross, Jamie Wilkes

Running time: 147mins (including 15min interval)

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders.

Basing his plot on a farce by Plautus, Shakespeare caps the mayhem of his Roman original to build up a hectic tale of violent cross-purposes, furious slapstick and social nightmare.

The final Globe On Screen film for 2015 brings the perfect light relief to close an epic season of war and tragedy. This sell-out production employed authentic Renaissance costumes and staging and will have cinema audiences roaring with laughter as it crams in “more hilarious anarchy than you can shake a fish, cat or identity-confused servant at.” (London Theatre Guide).

Exhibit onScreen Series: THE IMPRESSIONISTS (Arts Alliance)

From the Musée du Luxembourg & Musée D'orsay Paris, National Gallery London and Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Uncover the story of art’s greatest revolutionaries. Featuring work by Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Degas, Pissarro and many more.

Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Renoir: some of the world’s most popular artists. Their works, and that of their contemporaries, fetch tens of millions of dollars around the globe. But who were they really? Why & how exactly did they paint? What lies behind their enduring appeal?

To help answer these questions, this unique film secured unparalleled access to a major new exhibition focussing on the man credited with inventing Impressionism as we know it: 19th century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel. This eagerly anticipated international exhibition is possibly the most comprehensive exploration of the Impressionists in history.

It was Durand-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 that introduced enlightened wealthy Americans to this modern French painting. In doing so, he not only filled great American galleries with Impressionist masterworks, but kept Impressionism alive at a time when it faced complete failure. This energetic and revealing film will tell his remarkable story along with that of the Impressionists themselves. Featuring universally loved masterpieces by Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Renoir, Pissarro and many more

Globe onScreen Series: THE DUTCHESS OF MALFI (Arts Alliance)

Directed by: Dominic Dromgoole

Designer: Jonathan Fensom

Composer: Clare van Kampen

Cast: Gemma Arterton, Giles Cooper, David Dawson, John Dougall, James Garnon, Sean Gilder, Denise Gough, Sarah MacRae, Brendan O’Hea, Paul Rider, Dickon Tyrell, Alex Waldmann

Running time: 150mins (including 15min interval)

The widowed Duchess of Malfi longs to marry her lover, the steward Antonio. But her rancorous brothers, Ferdinand and the Cardinal, are implacably opposed to the match. When their spy, Bosola, discovers that the Duchess has secretly married and carries Antonio’s child, they exact a terrible and horrific revenge.

The Duchess of Malfi, featuring Hollywood star Gemma Arterton in the title role, is a thrilling combination of brilliant coups de théâtre, horrific set-pieces and vivid characters, all lit by Webster’s obsessional imagination.

Gemma Arterton returned to The Globe to play the Duchess in this sell-out production. Gemma made her professional stage debut at the Globe in 2007, when she won huge critical acclaim as Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost.

This most intimate Jacobean tragedy proved a truly sensational curtain-raiser for The Globe’s very first season in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The Globe On Screen production is the first ever theatrical production to be filmed entirely in candlelight – a unique and un-missable opening for the 2015 cinema season.
