Whether you love art, film, fashion, celebrities or mid-00s TV shows that are just about to make a comeback, everyone has taken an on-screen gander at The Met. We've all heard of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and its famous galas, of course — and the fact that the institution frequently pops up on-screen is one of the reasons why.

Until October, Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art is showcasing European masterpieces from The Met's collection as part of a huge exhibition. Across the coming months, the South Bank site is also celebrating the NY venue in its in-house cinema. At The Met: The Masters and the Modern Day, two types of flicks are on the bill: movies set at iconic gallery, naturally, and also films about famous artists.

In the first category, Brisbanites can look forward to watching everything from Ocean's 8 and When Harry Met Sally to documentaries The First Monday in May and Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles. In the second camp sits movies such as Mr Turner, about the life of British painter JMW Turner; and At Eternity's Gate, about Vincent Van Gogh.

While you'll need to pay to get into the exhibition, The Met: The Masters and the Modern Day's screenings are all free — regardless of whether you're there to see the art or not. And, they're taking place at 10.30am every Saturday until October 16.
