    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

    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.

    The Wolfsonian-FIU


    Directed by Gaspar González, 2018; 50 min

    In the 1940s and '50s, Havana’s love affair with Hollywood saw movie stars like Ava Gardner, Marlon Brando, and Gary Cooper flock to the Caribbean—and immortalize the tropical island’s paradise and pleasures on the silver screen. Spot visiting celebrity caricatures through a 4pm tour of The Wolfsonian’s latest installation on work by 20th-century graphic artist Conrado W. Massaguer, then head up the street for a 5pm showing of Errol Flynn’s Ghost: Hollywood in Havana. The 2018 documentary follows the history of the American cinema craze in Cuba to one actor’s mountaintop meeting with a young Fidel Castro before the Revolution.

    Q&A with film director Gaspar González to follow the film

    (FREE for MBC and Wolfsonian members, seniors, and students)

    Optional tour of Cuban Caricature and Culture at The Wolf is included in the film admission price.

    The 1950s


    in 3/D

    Directed by WILLIAM CAMERON MENZIES/1953/80mins.

    With Richard Carlson, Veronica Hurst, Katherine Emery

    Newly Restored in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive from 4K scans by Paramount Pictures Archives! The Maze is a 1953 atmospheric horror film in 3-D, directed by William Cameron Menzies (Invaders from Mars, Things to Come) and starring Richard Carlson (The Magnetic Monster) as Scotsman Gerald MacTeam (Carlson) who abruptly breaks off his engagement to pretty Kitty Murray (Veronica Hurst) after receiving word of his uncle's death and inheriting a mysterious castle in the Scottish Highlands. Kitty refuses to accept the broken engagement and travels with her aunt (Katherine Emery) to the castle. When they arrive, they discover that Gerald has suddenly aged and his manner has changed significantly. After a series of mysterious events occur in both the castle and the hedge maze outside, they invite a group of friends, including a doctor, to the castle, hoping they can help Gerald with whatever ails him. Menzies was known for his very dimensional style, focusing many shots in layers – The Maze was his final film as production designer and director.
