Cinema broadcasts for opera, theatre and ballet have all taken off. Maybe exhibitions are next. The British Museum has a hugely popular exhibition on at present, Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. It's quite difficult to get a ticket, given the demand. There will be a cinema broadcast of the exhibition on 18 June. Details at


The cinemas in question seem to be only UK / Ireland, but I suppose it might spread further or be repeated. This might not be the first live cinema event for an exhibition - I have a vague recollection that the Royal Academy's recent Manet exhibition was broadcast.

Much obliged for the heads-up, Lynette H. It's not the same thing as being there, of course, but I do think cinema broadcasts of these exhibits is a good idea. I expect they'd schedule carefully, because I think there'd be a real risk of people going to the cinema and then not bothering to get to the actual exhibition, but the more the merrier IMO.

Pompeii itself is in trouble. I hope the Italian government can get it together.


Two years after the announcement that the union would commit more than $140 million to the restoration of Pompeii, where exposure to the elements and ill-fated interventions have led to routine collapses, the union’s regional affairs commissioner, Johannes Hahn, visited the city on Wednesday with three Italian government ministers.

I hope anyone who sees the exhibition will tell us about it. Does anyone know of other museum exhibits shown in movie houses?

At the last Met in HD showing of "Giulio Cesare" in Vancouver there was an ad for a series of exhibition broadcasts.
