Wells’ The Shape of Things to Come, the story centers around the citizens of Everytown as they struggle to survive war, famine, and disease before scientific progress heralds an age of salvation and growth. Join us for a 4pm tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at The Wolfsonian before experiencing the Art Deco metropolis of Everytown in Things to Come at O Cinema South Beach (1130 Washington Avenue) at 5pm.
