ENTER NOW FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A FANTASTIC SET OF PRIZES TO CELEBRATE THE MARRIAGE BETWEEN CINEMA AND ART

Prize Draw with The Cinema Museum August 2017

 

 

 

 

Leighton House Museum and The Cinema Museum have teamed up this summer to celebrate the life and work of two visionary artists, separated by a century yet united by their impact on contemporary cinema.

 

Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity at Leighton House Museum

From shortly after his death, early filmmakers turned to Alma-Tadema’s paintings as they looked for inspiration for their own recreations of life in antiquity.  The appeal of his work was not just its authentic feel derived from objects, costume and architecture, but the spatial devises that he had evolved. Tadema’s dramatic framings of his subjects, his changes in scale, his use of curtains to divide and reveal space and his incorporation of different floor levels within a single composition were all picked up and translated into early film.

 

Ken Russell Season at The Cinema MuseumThe Cinema Museum: A Tribute to Ken Russell

Over five days in August (Wednesday 23 – Sunday 27) The Cinema Museum will be celebrating the life and work of a visionary genius – a groundbreaking pioneer in TV and film making – the flamboyant, unconventional, controversial, and one of the last great British romantics, Ken Russell. This will include Melvyn Bragg discussing Ken’s films for the BBC; a screening of The Devils introduced by Mark Kermode; Robert Powell and Georgina Hale introducing Mahler: Glenda Jackson discussing her work with Ken, and Ken’s widow Lisi and others talking about his life and work, followed by a screening of Savage Messiah.
