Film Event: The Architect and the Painter at Renovated Tampa Theatre

  • Tampa Theatre 711 North Franklin Street Tampa, FL, 33602 United States (map)

Join us at the newly renovated Tampa Theatre, considered by BBC to be one of the ten most beautiful cinemas in the world.

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life - from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age - has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.
