Cineplex`s In The Gallery presents

The Vatican Museums 3D

October 2 and 19, 2014

Shot in the museum at night, The Vatican Museums 3D is an extraordinary voyage of discovery though the most impressive and rare collection of art in the world, spanning all cultures, and all epochs, and built up over two thousand years of history. Thanks to a unique mix of native 3D and the most advanced dimensional techniques used in cinema today, audiences will immerse themselves in the greatest masterpieces of art history, experience the paintings of Caravaggio and, with unprecedented realism, touch Laocoön and the Belvedere Torso, and feel swathed by the figures in the Sistine Chapel.

This is a mega-production by a team of 40 professionals who explored the length and breadth of the Vatican Museums, filming amazing night-time footage through the halls which house some of the rarest and most precious works of art in the world, spanning all cultures and all epochs.  From the masterpieces of classic statues to the Cast of Michelangelo’s Pietà, right up to Fontana’s modern sculptures; from paintings by Giotto,  and Leonardo da Vinci to those by Van Gogh, Chagall and Dalì; from the extraordinary frescos in the Rooms of Raphael, such as “The School of Athens” to the spectacular masterpieces by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel such as the “Creation of Adam” and the majestic “Last Judgment”. These are the stages of a unique, emotional journey under the guidance of the Director of the Vatican Museums, Professor Antonio Paolucci, expertly leading us through past, present and future.
