Tonight our whole family went to the local Cinemark theater to see “Pompeii From The British Museum”. This was a super-cool documentary-style rebroadcast from the British Museum in London, who had an extraordinary exhibit on Pompeii and Herculaneum last year.
Fathom Events, The British Museum and More2Screen are thrilled to bring back Pompeii from the British Museum – an exclusive private view of the major exhibition Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. This extraordinary one-night event will take place on Thursday, October 23 at 7:00 p.m. (local time) in select cinemas nationwide.
The exhibition, first shown in cinemas last year, explores the homes and lives of the inhabitants of the thriving industrial hub of Pompeii and the small seaside town of Herculaneum nearly 2,000 year ago when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. Introduced by British Museum Director Neil McGregor, cinema audiences will be treated to an exclusive, family-friendly view of the exhibition with insights from renowned experts who help bring these fascinating objects to life. With accompanying music, poetry and readings from eyewitness accounts, you will go behind the scenes of the exhibition to discover the stories of these famous Roman cities. Don’t miss the chance to travel back in history and experience daily life in the Roman Empire before the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius left Pompeii and Herculaneum frozen in time.
