One Great Venue for ‘Woman in Gold’ film


Renowned for its versatility as a venue; from meetings and events to fashion shows, films and even the Media Centre for the Olympics, Westminster-based One Great George Street has once again proved a popular central London filming location.

Director Simon Curtis used the venue’s iconic Great Hall as a backdrop for its key gallery scene featuring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds as they stand awe-struck by Kilmt’s famous paintings.

Woman in Gold covers the remarkable true story of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's famous painting 'Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I'.
