About this Event

Watch Mike Leigh’s biopic of JMW Turner, in the unique setting of Margate Museum’s Magistrates Court.

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Film is rated 12A.

£3 entry.

Popcorn, wine and soft drinks will also be available to purchase!

Doors open 7pm, film starts 7.30pm
