The Big Deal: ‘The Monuments Men’ Advanced Screening At The Kimbell Art Museum

by Gila Espinoza 15 Jan 2014 8:30 AM

Can’t wait to see The Monuments Men when it comes out in theaters in February?  You won’t have to, if you win this Big Deal. The Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth will host a special advanced screening of the movie starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Cate Blanchett. The screening will be the first film shown in the new concrete and glass Renzo Piano Pavilion auditorium.

The film is based on the best-selling book by Robert M. Edsel and tells the true story of the group of architects, curators, art historians and other non-soldier types, whose mission was to protect and return artistic and cultural treasures stolen by Hitler and the Nazis during WWII. Clooney not only stars in the highly anticipated film but he also directed it. I know I can’t wait to see it.

This is a Kimbell Art Museum members-only event, but you only have to be an Art&Seek e-newsletter subscriber for a chance to win tickets for the Jan. 19, 1 p.m. screening. That’s this Sunday so everybody be sure to check your inbox Friday afternoon. You do not want to be reading our email first thing Monday morning.
