608 North Art Gallery presents Art & The Movies, an exhibition featuring original movie posters from the 80s and 90s on Saturday, February 8 from 5 until 9 p.m.
Movies can be a powerful influence on people and society. They can make you laugh or cry; they can scare you or lighten your heart. They can move you and inspire you to change the world in ways you may never have imagined. KIND OF LIKE ART!
608 North will present a small sample of their collection of hundreds of original movie posters. These were movies of a new era in the industry, with cutting edge special effects, dramatic colors and new sound systems but, still made for the theater.
The short list includes Superman 2, Once Upon A Time in America, Flash Gordon, Wyatt Earp, Pale Rider, The Right Stuff, Batman, The Untouchables, Giant, Under the Cherry Moon, Hey Good Lookin’, Star Trek IV and more!
Intermixed with these movie posters will be original art and photography by some very talented artists. These artists have created pieces that celebrate the movies, Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general.
