Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we will not be hosting Kitchen Stove at Landmark Cinemas for the Fall Season. Instead, we are offering a new film series at the Gallery focusing on films about artists and their lives. We hope you’ll join us in the Tea Room for our new Kitchenette Film Series!

At Eternity’s Gate
Directed by Julian Schnabel
2018 / 110 minutes

In At Eternity’s Gate, a vivid portrait of Vincent van Gogh toward the end of his life, the artist walks and walks. Often dressed in a blue shirt, he carries an easel, brushes, and paint strapped to his back. One day in 1888, he puts his battered boots on the red tile floor of his room in Arles, France. He quickly begins creating a simple painting of them; the original now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The journey of those shoes from humble floor to museum wall tells a familiar story about van Gogh, whose painful life is part of a brand known as Vincent the Mad Genius. This film imagines a different Vincent. This Vincent is not defined by that brand but by the art with which he at once communes with the world and transcends it.
