Tuesday 18th June 2013 @ 7.00pm
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!
The first live cinema event ever produced by the British Museum, offering an exclusive private view of the major exhibition, ‘Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum’. the first live cinema event produced by the British Museum from a major exhibition. See the wonders of the exhibition from the comfort of the cinema, introduced live by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor and featuring Mary Beard, Rachel de Thame, Giorgio Locatelli and Exhibition Curator Paul Roberts who bring extraordinary objects to life in this unique event. Plus, you’ll see specially made films of Pompeii and Herculaneum today, and go behind the scenes of the exhibition to explore the stories of these famous Roman cities.
This exhibition is the first ever held on these important cities at the British Museum, and the first such major exhibition in London for almost 40 years. The exhibition has a unique focus, looking at the Roman home and lives of the people who lived nearly 2000 years ago in Pompeii and Herculaneum, both typical Roman towns at the heart of the empire.
“We are hugely excited to be working with the British Museum. This is a wonderful opportunity to continue our commitment in pushing the boundaries of traditional cinema exhibition. Not only are we helping to bring the epic and immense story of Pompeii and Herculaneum to a regional audience, but we’re doing it in a unique, intimate and affordable way. We are thrilled that the British Museum are joining the group of cultural bodies offering engaging content that will undoubtedly appeal to our customers”. Eugene Tobin, Manager.
