Swords & Sandals: Hollywood's Ancient World

Swords & Sandals: Hollywood's Ancient World

Join us after the museum closes where you can enjoy the chance to view our headline exhibition, Hollywood Rome: Reel Life in the Ancient World, then join Keith Lodwick, Curator - Theatre & Performance at the Victoria & Albert Museum for a discussion on Hollywood Rome.

From Spartacus to Gladiator, the Roman era has always inspired film-makers from the silent era to modern digital productions. In this richly illustrated talk, film curator Keith Lodwick will explore some of the most enduring films that have depicted the ancient world, and how they have come to shape our view of history.

We are running this event as part of the national Museums at Night Festival programme.
