Four majestic buildings – each with a precious papal altar, each a treasure trove of timeless works of art and a destination for millions of travellers and pilgrims over the centuries – play the leading role in this cinematic tour de force, while state of the art technology captures amazing images from completely new and exclusive points of view. Join world renowned experts who will discuss the basilicas; their evolution over the centuries, their most famous works of art, the lives and stories of Popes and artists – from Giotto to Bramante, from Michelangelo to Francesco Borromini, from Bernini to Domenico Fontana, from Arnolfo di Cambio to Jacopo Torriti – the events that made these places immortal, and the profound spirituality emanating from them.

Exhibition on Screen

Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter and social commentator par excellence. Goya takes the genre of portraiture to new heights and his genius is reappraised in a landmark exhibition at The National Gallery, London. Through a great collection of unique works and Goya’s letters, we reflect upon the man himself and the world he painted. Goya is an artist whose powerful vision and technical prowess makes him one of the most admired icons of the artistic world.

  1. It’s a shame, the Showcase cinema was much better overall. Shut down for development but that mall has been lying vacant for almost two decades. We’re really lucky to have a cinema still standing in Newcastle I suppose.
