Pompeii (and Herculaneum) LIVE worldwide

The British Museum's rousing success with the summer-long exhibition on Pompeii and Herculaneum is scheduled to end at Great Russell Street in a couple of weeks. Those fortunate enough to have seen it will likely not soon forget it. But travel to London ... Well, a remarkable opportunity has come for a worldwide audience to take in a special live cinematic visit to the exhibition in the comfort of their own local cineplex.

For instance: on an evening in September I could view the London exhibit at a 16-screen cinema complex about 40 miles from my home. There will be learned commentary and educational enhancement, to boot. Visit the website to determine when and where you can view this broadcast.
The British Museum shares its tremendous exhibit in cinemas worldwide.

It's billed as the first live cinema event produced by the British Museum from a major exhibition.

The exhibition is really quite remarkable. One might fairly anticipate this innovative add-on will also prove so.
