The Monuments Men
February 6 - 27, 2014
George Clooney directs and stars alongside Matt Damon and a stunning ensemble cast for the true story of an unlikely World War II platoon who are sent to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners.
With the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, this group–museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1– are on a real-life mission: impossible. Nicknamed "the Monuments Men", these improbable heroes are in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, risking their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.
