Discover Michelangelo’s secret code at Town Hall Theater
MIDDLEBURY — “The Michelangelo Code: Lost Secrets of the Sistine Chapel,” a fascinating investigation of one of the most famous paintings in the world, will screen at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater on Wednesday, April 17, as part of the Great Art Wednesdays series.
The largest and arguably most famous painting in the world, the “Sistine Ceiling” has invited years of admiration and wonder. But the hidden meaning behind Michelangelo’s masterpiece has eluded over 500 years of investigation and speculation. Now, British art critic Waldemar Januszczak has finally discovered what the great painting has been trying to tell us.
Granted unparalleled access to the Sistine Chapel by the Vatican, Januszczak works out the secret code that Michelangelo had hidden in the ceiling, overturns the myths surrounding the masterpiece, and presents an exciting new theory involving the Branch Davidians of Waco, two della Rovere Popes, a Vatican spin doctor, and an intensely religious artist by the name of Michelangelo Buonarroti. This film is full of exclusive new footage of the world’s greatest piece of art and the results of Januszczak’s research will amaze you.
Come see for yourself on Wednesday, at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets ($13 / $8) are available and can be purchased at the THT box office, by phone at (802) 388-9222 or online at townhalltheater.org.
