“Lights, Camera, Deco!”

Museum-and-a-Movie Series

In collaboration with the Wolfsonian-FIU

The Wolfsonian–FIU and Miami Beach Cinematheque are teaming up for a summer of art and film with an Art Deco spin! From drama to cult horror and even a musical romance, we’re bringing you Tinseltown talkies from the 1930s to look at how some of Hollywood’s heavyweight directors Deco-fied their elegant, streamlined sets. Join us on select Sundays for a 4pm guided tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at the museum, followed by a perfectly paired film screening at 5pm across the street at the theater.


Directed by WILLIAM CAMERON MENZIES/1936/1hr 40min

With Raymond Massey, Edward Chapman, Ralph Richardson

The grand finale in our Deco film series is William Cameron Menzies’ 1936 sci-fi classic Things to Come, a film about a world war that spans 30 years. Adapted from H.G. Wells’ The Shape of Things to Come, the film centers around the citizens of Everytown as they struggle to survive war, famine, and disease before scientific progress heralds an age of salvation and growth. Join us for a 4pm tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at The Wolfsonian before experiencing the Art Deco metropolis of Everytown in Things to Come at the Cinematheque at 5pm.
