On Thursday, Rialto Cinema in Newmarket is showing this 88 min documentary about Renaissance painter Raphael.

'Marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, the greatest exhibition ever held of his works took place in Rome. Exhibition on Screen was granted exclusive access to this once-in-a-lifetime show. With over two hundred masterpieces, including paintings and drawings – over a hundred of which have been brought together for the first time – this major exhibition celebrates the life and work of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino.

Award-winning director Phil Grabsky provides a fresh look at this giant of the Renaissance, and shows why he is considered one of the all-time greats. The film covers his life in Rome, and includes unique footage of the ancient Rome that was such a powerful influence, including rare footage of Nero’s Golden House that Raphael himself visited.

More than just a painter, Raphael was one of the most extraordinary artists of the Renaissance but is often misunderstood or mythologised.'

Film starts at 6 pm. Let's meet at the Rialto at 5.45 pm. Cost is $19 ($12.50 or $16 for concessions).

For those willing, option to discuss the film afterwards over a drink and/or bite to eat.
