Exhibition on Screen Season Nine: The Danish Collector (PG)

Exhibition on Screen Season Nine: The Danish Collector

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result. Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge. Some collectors we may recognise and some we may not, but Hansen amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Exhibition on Screen tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sellout exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, brings the extraordinary collection to the big-screen in glorious high-definition. From Hansen’s beautiful house and gardens at Ordrupgaard to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.

Edward Scissorhands (PG)

Edward Scissorhands

The Loft Movie Theatre is proud to present a one-night special screening of Tim Burton's 1990 gothic fairy tale, Edward Scissorhands.


When Avon saleswoman Peg Boggs (Dianne Wiest) hauls her cosmetics case to the door of a dark and seemingly-derelict castle at the top of her otherwise pastel suburban street, she finds herself face to face with a mysterious boy with blades for fingers (Johnny Depp).


Realising the lonely stranger is more gentle than he might first appear, Peg takes Edward home to live with her family, but when a gang of interfering neighbourhood wives demand to be introduced to the Boggs' strange new house guest, Edward finds himself the centre of attention in ways he has never known before.


At first the town treats Edward like a celebrity, and soon he starts to feel like he may find his place in society, but when he falls in love with Peg's daughter Kim (Winona Ryder), her jealous boyfriend Jim (Anthony Michael Hall) finds vindictive ways to use Edward's differences against him.


Set in a surreal and nostalgic world from the minds of Tim Burton and Caroline Thompson (A Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride), with an enigmatic performance from Johnny Depp, and a haunting score by Danny Elfman, Edward Scissorhands is the snow-covered winter classic not to be missed on the big screen this Christmas.

Exhibition on Screen Season Nine: Frida Kahlo Encore (12A)

Exhibition on Screen Season Nine: Frida Kahlo Encore

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.


Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.


Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.


We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?


“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality” Frida Kahlo

Exhibition on Screen Season 9: Pissaro Father of Impressionism

Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism. It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed, and throughout it all he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work.


Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.


The Ashmolean Museum has a long tradition of excellence. As the UK’s first ever public museum (it opened its doors in May 1683) it houses a wonderfully rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive. With exclusive access to most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter, and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores and highlights the enthralling and hugely important biography and output of an incredible artist.
