CAA Offers Free Tickets to The Monuments Men

posted by Christopher Howard — Feb 04, 2014

CAA is giving away free movie tickets to special screenings of The Monuments Men, directed by and starring George Clooney, in four cities across the United States to its members. The organization has ten tickets (five pairs) for the New York screening; ten tickets (five pairs) for Los Angeles; six tickets (three pairs) for Chicago; and six tickets (three pairs) for Houston.

Please send your name, the name of your guest, your city, and your CAA User/Member ID# to caanews@collegeart.org by 3:00 PM EST today. Winners will be notified after 4:00 PM.

The Monuments Men were a group of approximately 345 men and women from thirteen nations who comprised the MFAA section during World War II. Many were museum directors, curators, art historians, artists, architects, and educators—and also members of CAA. Together they worked to protect monuments and other cultural treasures from the destruction of World War II. In the last year of the war, they tracked, located, and in the years that followed returned more than five million artistic and cultural items stolen by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Their role in preserving cultural treasures was without precedent.

All four screenings will take place this Wednesday, February 5, 2014, at 7:30 PM. Here are the locations:

  • New York screening: AMC Loews West 34th Street 14, 312 West 34th Street, Manhattan
  • Los Angeles screening: Edwards Long Beach 26 and IMAX, 7501 Carson Boulevard, Long Beach
  • Chicago screening: AMC Showplace Cicero 14, 4779 West Cermak Road
  • Houston screening: AMC Gulf Pointe 30, 11801 South Sam Houston Parkway East

Tickets to The Monuments Men are guaranteed, not first-come, first-served. CAA will send the winners’ names to the film promoter, who will put them on the VIP list. You will not need printed tickets.
