The Monuments Men

The Monuments Men ~ staring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, the film is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.

We will meet at 3:45 pm. The movie starts at 4:00 pm. Don't forget to purchase your ticket when you arrive. We will wait in the outer lobby for about 10 minutes and then go in as a group. If you are late, just find a seat and meet us outside the theater after the movie.



After the movie we will gather at a nearby restaurant for some conversation and a bite to eat.

A $2.00 annual contribution will be collected at the first movie you attend in 2014 to help with the cost of maintaining the web site for this year.

See you at the movies!

    Very well done and very informative. I didn't realize the extent of the art work stolen or that the Russians were going to take it and not give it back to its rightful owners.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
