ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre will screen Tokyo Stories as a high-definition Exhibition On Screen presentation on Thursday, June 1, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Working with top international museums and galleries, Exhibition On Screen create films which offer a cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from leading historians and arts critics.
Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, England, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.
“The exhibition was a smash-hit success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum,” said the Strand, in a news release. “The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself, and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.”
Running time is 1 hours 30 minutes.
Tickets: $15/General Admission, $12/Strand Members. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit www.rocklandstrand.com or call (207) 594-0070 EX 3.
