Tired of only being able to satisfy your Modern Cinema fix just once a year?

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth partners with film critic  Christopher Kelly to host regular "Modern Cinema" screenings - sneak previews of critically acclaimed titles, unsung highlights from the film festival circuit, and newly restored classic films - on a monthly basis. Kelly introduces the films, and closes with a  Q&A session. Film titles will be announced 2 weeks in advance. Screenings are held in the Museum's auditorium.

The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
