Delve into the turn-of-the century Vienna artworld and tour through exhibitions of Klimt and Schiele’s legendary works.

1918. As the roar of the First World War cannons is dying out, in Vienna, the heart of Central Europe, a golden age comes to an end. The Austro-Hungarian Empire is beginning to disintegrate. Since the dawn of the century, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele have fundamentally changed the feeling of art, through a new way of painting that portrayed the restlessness, fears and desires of mankind. 

Taking place across five stunning exhibitions with never-before-seen access, Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche recounts this extraordinary moment in art history – a magical moment for art, literature and music, in which new ideas are circulated, Freud discovers the depths of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence.  

Presented in pristine high definition, this glorious big screen experience is a must-see for art lovers and film lovers alike.
