Imperial War Museum Exhibit Includes Lorre

From July 2016 until January 2017, the Imperial War Museum in London, England, presents the new exhibit “Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies”, a look at the ways filmmakers use the backdrop and drama of war to tell stories of tragedy and loss, fear and courage, including film clips, costumes, props, scripts, sketches, and designs from such films as Casablanca (1942), and War Horse (2011), among others.

A special film program of three wartime movies will accompany the exhibit, including Peter Lorre’s Casablanca (1942).

The exhibit will run until Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Casablanca will be shown on Thursday, November 3, 2016, at 7 pm in the museum’s atrium on the traveling pop-up movie screen called The Nomad, below a Spitfire suspended from the museum’s ceiling.

Admission is £25 for everyone, which includes the film screening, entrance to the “Real to Reel” exhibit, and a complimentary drink. Tickets may be purchased through The Nomad Cinema website. A booking fee of £2.50 will be charged on all on-line purchases.

A complete list of all programs, discussions, gallery talks, and movies included with the “Real to Reel” exhibit is available on the Imperial War Museum website.

The Imperial War Museum is located on Lambeth Road, SE1, in London, England.

The museum is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm.

Admission to the museum is £10 for adults, £5 for children and Art Fund members, and £7 for concessions (seniors, students, and the unemployed). Admission is free for Imperial War Museum members.

The Imperial War Museum is well-served by public transportation options, such as the London underground and bus routes. The nearest tube stations are Waterloo and Elephant and Castle. Lambeth North, also close by and most convenient to the museum, is closed until mid-February, 2017.
