Museums & the Movies

Do you have a favourite museum movie? Mine, without hesitation, would be the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, starring Pierce Brosnan as suave playboy billionaire Thomas Crown, who moonlights as an art thief at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen it. Followed closely by Don’t Eat the Pictures, from 1983, which sees the Sesame Street gang descend, once again, on the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Actually, once you start listing movies that feature museums, the MET racks up quite a few appearances. In Museums & the Movies, I share reviews of my favourite museum movies and others I’ve discovered. Why not take a look – perhaps you’ll find something for your next movie night!

And here are a couple of other posts from the blog where movies get a mention:
