‘The Monuments Men’ to Screen at White House

Monuments Men

Sony’s “The Monuments Men” will screen at the White House on Tuesday night, with cast and crew attending.

The film has grossed about $47 million at the box office. The White House occasionally announces screenings of movies in the Family Theater, particularly ones with historical and social relevance, although this event will not be open to the press.

The film’s star, director and co-screenwriter, George Clooney, is a longtime supporter of President Obama, and hosted a fundraiser for his reelection at his Studio City home in May 2012.

  1. Okay – so the film “monument men” may be more than a little inaccurate! But I don’t care – I like the actors (esp Matt Damon & George Clooney & Bill Murray & Hugh Bonneville) – and I don’t think I’m going to be cringing because of the violence. I would be VERY surprised if I didn’t like it – I’ll let you know in due course.
