In celebration of the upcoming exhibition, Girl with a Pearl Earring, the High will host screenings (that's big-screen screenings) of the 2003 movie with the same name on Saturdays in June and July.
Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, to present Investigating the Mystique: Girl with a Pearl Earring at the High on Thursday, August 15 from 7 to 8 p.m. The talk is free but tickets are required.
