Warner Bros. Theater to Open at Smithsonian in February

Warner Bros. Theater to Open at Smithsonian in February

A new theater bearing the Warner Bros. studio name will open in February 2012 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.  In addition to providing the grant to fund the theater’s renovation, Warners will also partner with the Smithsonian Institute to present four public film festivals throughout the coming year. 

Following a gala opening in February, the new theater will present a tribute to Humphrey Bogart, with screenings of his iconic films including “Casablanca,” “The Maltese Falcon” and “The Big Sleep.” In June, the Museum of Natural History will feature a celebration of Clint Eastwood’s work, and a retrospective on silent film in July will present a 60th anniversary screening of “Singing in the Rain.” In late October, the Warner Bros. Theater will honor the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with showings of “Glory,” “Gettysburg,” “Gods & Generals” and, of course, “Gone With the Wind.” The theater’s renovation was funded by a $5 million donation from Warner Bros. to renovate the museum’s 46-year-old auditorium.  The new, modernized venue will include top-notch visual technology and the ability to screen 3-D movies.
