MOVIE NIGHT AT VIZCAYA November 18 at 7:00 p.m.

Emmy-Nominated WPBT2 Documentary
Screening Wednesday,
November 18 at 7:00 p.m.
Miami, Florida – October 26, 2009 –

VIZCAYA, a new documentary film on the remarkable history and survival of Miami’s landmark Vizcaya will be shown as part of the Museum’s film series on Wednesday, November 18 at 7:00 p.m. The documentary, which is scheduled to air in nearly 70 markets in the coming year, was just nominated for an Emmy by the Suncoast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The Suncoast Chapter includes television stations in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Puerto Rico. The documentary is narrated by actor and part-time Miami resident, Andy Garcia.

“This documentary about Vizcaya is the first of its kind. Never before has an all-encompassing documentary about this National Historic Landmark been created,” said producer Linda Corley. Corley, who has a background in the arts, decorative arts and architecture, has long been drawn to the enchantment, the mystery and the beauty of Vizcaya.

“It’s an amazing story, from its envisioning to its completion,” said Corley. “When people visit the house, they ooh and aah about the paintings, carpets, tapestries, etc., but visitors don’t seem to understand what it took to build the house.”

The film details the incredible vision of James Deering in constructing Vizcaya and the astounding confluence of talent that made it possible– and that made it unique in its time as well as today.

Tickets $15, available evening of program only, seating is limited.
