The term “art house” takes on new meaning with a special theatrical series of
events as NCM Fathom Events, BY Experience and PhilGrabskyFilms.com bring the
world’s greatest art exhibitions to U.S. cinemas this year. The “EXHIBITION”
cinema series will feature high-definition tours of fine art exhibitions
created for movie theater audiences beginning with “Manet: Portraying Life” on
Thursday, April 11 featuring a career-encompassing collection of the works of
Édouard Manet which is currently on exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts,
London. The series then celebrates the 150^th anniversary of Edvard Munch in
“Munch: Munch 150”  on Thursday, June 27 as the National Museum and the Munch
Museum in Oslo host this “once-in-a-lifetime” 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 Thursday, Oct. 10, comes from the
National Gallery in London where audiences will see a unique perspective 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. The series is supported by DSAT Cinema.

Tickets for “EXHIBITION” are available at participating theater box offices
and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations
and prices, visit the NCM Fathom website (theaters and participants are
subject to change). The event will be broadcast to nearly 450 select movie
theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.

“Manet: Portraying Life” – Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. local time

The eagerly awaited exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, “Manet:
Portraying Life” is the first-ever major UK exhibition devoted to the
portraiture of Édouard Manet, spanning his entire career. The exhibition which
includes masterpieces like “Music in the Tuileries,” “Olympia,” “Luncheon on
the Grass” and “The Railway” will bring together great works from across
Europe, Asia and the U.S. The cinema event will feature exclusive
behind-the-scenes moments of the Royal Academy's exhibition preparation –
moments usually hidden from view – and a biography of Manet and 19^th century
Paris. Together with expert guests, Marlow will examine the works of one of
the all-time great artists and his forward-thinking, modern approach to
portraiture.

“Munch: Munch 150” – Thursday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. local time

Known for painting “The Scream” – which recently set a public art auction
record of $120 million for one of the four paintings – Munch’s exhibition has
been hailed a "once-in-a-lifetime show." Hosted by the National Museum and the
Munch Museum, both in Oslo, Norway, the event will feature the most ambitious
presentation of Munch’s art ever featuring 220 paintings – the greatest number
of Munch’s key works ever. The cinema event will take audiences through the
process of putting the exhibition together as well as an in-depth biography of
the man who lived from the mid-19^th century through to the German occupation
of Norway in World War II.

“Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure” – Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7:30
p.m. local time

The final exhibition in the series, “Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and
Leisure,” features the works of Vermeer who is most popularly known as the
painter of the “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” The National Gallery, London
focuses on his art in relation to music in this particular exhibition. Music
was one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and revealed an enormous
amount about the portrait model and the society. The event tells the entire
story of Vermeer's life and, in doing so, shows in detail many of the artist's
great works including how his technique and materials affected his works.

“This exciting art exhibition series gives movie theater audiences a very
unique opportunity to experience the detailed, superbly crafted works of
Manet, Munch’s remarkable masterpieces and Vermeer’s startling and fascinating
creations,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom
Events. “Host Tim Marlow’s expert knowledge of these three legendary artists
will take fans on a remarkable, larger-than-life journey during each event all
in the comfort of their local movie theater.”

NCM Fathom Events, BY Experience and PhilGrabskyFilms.com presented the highly
successful “Leonardo Live” exhibition in cinemas last year, taking audiences
to the UK’s National Gallery’s sold out exhibition of “Leonardo da Vinci:
Painter at the Court of Milan.”
