State Theatre and Zimmerli Art Museum present a high definition tour of the London's National Gallery blockbuster exhibition, "Leonardo da Vinci: Painter in the Court of Milan" on a larger-than-life 46-foot screen. The historic exhibition is sold out in London and, due to the fragility of the paintings, the exhibition cannot tour.
