The series then celebrates the 150th anniversary of Edvard Munch on June 27, as the National Museum and the Munch Museum in Oslo host this unprecedented exhibition of the greatest number of Munch’s works ever.

The final exhibition in the series, “Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure” on Oct. 10, comes from the National Gallery in London and focuses on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer.

Each cinema event is hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, who will go beyond each gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

Tickets are available at participating theatre box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be broadcast to nearly 450 select movie theaters across the country.
