“Superbly evokes bohemian Paris.” (Variety)
In 1911 the Mona Lisa was ripped from the walls of the Louvre, to the shock of the French nation. Who could have perpetrated such a crime? The authorities swiftly turned their sights on the poet Apollinaire and his friend Pablo Picasso, whose Demoiselles d’Avignon bore a strange resemblance to some ancient heads also stolen from the museum. This lavish drama beautifully recreates Picasso’s circle, from artists and lovers to patrons like Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas.
Fernando Colomo. 2012. 101 m. NR. Spain, English/French with subtitles. Imagina.

Please note there is a $1.00 event fee. Please bring exact change to give to the organizer. The event fee is to help defray the cost of meet up. You must purchase your own ticket either online or at the Burns box office, it's $7 for members and $12 for nonmembers. I always suggest advance purchase especially if it is a one night event.
Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK BEFORE THE FILM. After the film we will meet again in the lobby. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the left it is by the stairs. If you do not meet at the desk then look for me in the lobby afterwards. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meet up group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.
