The Monuments Men - August 17, 2017
Arthouse @ NYLO
In an effort to activate our space and engage the local community, we are rolling out a program in-situ about all-things-art. ARTHOUSE @ NYLO will continue its silent film screening series with The Monuments Men (2014), starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, and John Goodman. During World War II, the Nazis steal countless pieces of art and hide them away. Some over-the-hill art scholars, historians, architects and other experts form a unit to retrieve as many of the stolen masterpieces as possible. The mission becomes even more urgent when the team learns about Hitler's "Nero Decree," which orders destruction of the artworks if the Third Reich falls. Caught in a race against time, the men risk their lives to protect some of mankind's greatest achievements.
Individual headsets will be provided by SoundOff™ for a fully immersive experience. Ticket includes one of two unique specialty cocktails inspired by the film.
The back-to-back screenings take place Wednesday, July 26th at 7:00PM and 9:30PM in the NYLO Library-turned-Screening-Room. To secure a spot, please reserve online. Thank you!
[Rated PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking] Run time: 1hr 58min
