You may know Edvard Munch as the guy who painted the iconic The Scream, but his other work is equally brilliant and disturbing. See for yourself at tonight’s showing of Exhibition: Great Art on Screen, a new series of worldwide broadcasts that tell the stories of great artists and their art. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at select movie theaters across the Valley.
