The Movie Poster Art Gallery, in conjunction with the Royal Albert Hall presents Music to the Eyes as part of the Hall’s first Festival of Film.
This exhibition of all-original and vintage movie posters celebrates films with iconic poster graphics and outstanding musical scores, from Jaws and Star Wars (John Williams) to The Godfather (Nino Rota), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Henry Mancini), Taxi Driver (Bernard Herrman), James Bond (John Barry) and many more.
Having survived more by chance than design (in old warehouses, empty theatre basements, and through the foresight of a few unconventional individuals) this is bold, colourful, original classic film art.
The exhibition will be on display on the Royal Albert Hall’s Amphi Corridor and can be viewed when attending a performance at the Hall between 1 October – 8 November 2016, or on the following free open days:
Sunday 9 October: 10am-1pm
Sunday 16 October: 10am-2pm
Saturday 29 October: 10am-4pm: free Guided Tour, starting at 11.55am from the Café Bar
Friday 4 November: 10am-1pm
Saturday 5 November: 10am-1pm
Sunday 6 November: 10am-4pm
All items will be for sale.
