007 fans will be treated to two doses of James Bond at the North Carolina Museum of Art later this month.
Sean Connery’s first Bond film, Dr. No and Daniel Craig’s debut in last year’s Casino Royale will be screened on 24 and 25 August, respectively, as part of the museum’s Movies on the Lawn series.
- Dr. No – Friday, 24 August
- A young Sean Connery sets the standard as Agent 007 in the first entry in the longest running franchise in cinema history. An eye-popping Ursula Andress adds spark to this innovative thriller set in Jamaica.
- Casino Royale – Saturday, 25 August
- Forty-four years after the premier of Dr. No, critics and fans alike agree that director Martin Campbell and actor Daniel Craig have brought Bond back to the heights achieved during Connery’s heyday as the world’s most sensational spy. Cause for celebration.
The cost for general admission is $3 per person. There is no cost for North Carolina Museum of Art members and children under six. All movies begin at 9 PM, unless otherwise noted.
The North Carolina Museum of Art is located at 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607-6494.
