A NIGHT AT THE LOUVRE: LEONARDO DA VINCI (루브르박물관 기획특별전) - English with Korean Subtitles
Documentary.  Filmed at night especially for the big screen, this private guided tour of the LEONARDO DA VINCI exhibition, designed and curated by the Louvre Museum, is a unique opportunity to contemplate the painter's most beautiful works up close. This major retrospective devoted to his entire career as a painter shows how Leonardo placed painting above all other disciplines, and how his investigation of the world – the “science of painting” as he called it – was the instrument of an art whose supreme ambition was to give life to his works. The insights provided by the exhibition curators during this private filmed visit provide a new understanding of Leonardo’s artistic practice and painting technique.

NEW MOVIES are usually (but not always) released on Thursday in Korea and changes to the schedule can be made at any time .

K4E Notes: Most people in Korea book their tickets online and so there are often no seats (or very few) left if you go directly to the theatre. Unfortunately, anyone who is not a Korean citizen may be unable to book tickets online because a Korean ID number is required by most sites.

KOREAN MOVIES WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES*
You'll want to check that the screening you're going to see has English subtitles - Theatres usually only show the version with English subtitles at specific times - often at 'off-hours' (11AM, 11PM, Midnight or after, etc). The subtitled screenings are often of shorter duration than the Korean-only ones, with some pulled after only a few days. 
*If there is no listing, we've not received information on screenings with English subtitles. Do let us know if you are aware of any.

Anyone who has additional information on current or upcoming movies and where they are playing, please contact k4e at events@korea4expats.com
