Cover for Tim's Vermeer ©Sony Pictures ClassicsJoin us for Movie Time for Adults on Saturday, March 25, at 10 am when we will watch Tim's Vermeer ©Sony Pictures Classics.

Tim Jenison, a San Antonio-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did seventeenth century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer manage to paint photo-realistically, 150 years before the invention of photography? Spanning ten years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, to the north coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen. 

This is a fascinating film! It is rated PG-13 and the running time is 1 hour, 20 minutes.
