Do you dream of Picasso and drool over Degas?

The Kyabram Plaza Theatre has exciting news for you.

In conjunction with Exhibition On Screen, the theatre is presenting the works of four great artists on the big screen.

Cancel that plane ticket and settle into a comfy seat — Degas, Picasso, Rembrandt and Van Gogh will be on your doorstep.

Privileged access to world famous exhibitions allows you to see the works of these great artists and gives a revealing insight into their lives, minds and the things that influenced them.

Exhibition On Screen will be screened exclusively for the region at the Ky Theatre with only one screening of each episode in the series.

Degas: Passion For Perfection encompasses the exhibition at Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and has access to other rare and diverse works. Using written accounts by friends and narration of letters by Degas himself, this film tells the fascinating story of Degas’s pursuit for perfection.

Young Picasso gives viewers privileged access to every one of his major works while learning about Picasso’s extraordinary journey as an artist.

Encore: Rembrandt ventures into exhibitions at London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijks museum, documenting Rembrandt’s life story through contributions from special guests and leading art historians.

Van Gogh and Japan is based on the exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and also travels to France, Netherlands and Japan to bring an understanding of what influenced Van Gogh and his art through his most productive and most troubled years.

The next show is on Sunday, August 25. Tickets are $20.
