Rembrandt Has Left the Building: A Talk with Arnie Reisman

Monday, November 25 at 7:00 pm at the West Tisbury Library, learn how two screenwriters solved the nearly 30-year-old art heist at Boston’s Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum (and why they had to turn this historic event into a comedy). Arnie Reisman will tell the story of his award-winning original screenplay, Rembrandt Has Left the Building, co-written with Nat Segaloff, based on the world’s biggest unsolved art heist. Reisman’s and Segaloff’s script offers a compelling solution to who stole the paintings and why they will probably never be recovered. Based on interviews with the two chief suspects and a deathbed confession from one of them, it shows how the robbery was committed and the dryly funny reasons the investigation ran aground almost from the beginning. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments served.
