Wadsworth Atheneum’s new exhibit is “Sublime North: Romantic Painters Discover Norway: Paintings from the Collection of Asbjørn Lunde.” To complement the show, the museum hosts a series of screenings of Norwegian films.

On Saturday, Sept. 23, attendees to any film or all films will get a tour of the exhibit at 4:10 p.m., after the last film. After the tour, a Scandinavian-inspired dinner is available in the museum cafe. Here’s the Saturday lineup:

“Insomnia,” a 1997 Stellan Skarsgård thriller about a murder investigation conducted by a sleepless detective. Not rated. 11 a.m.

On Sunday, Sept. 24, a double feature will be preceded at 12:30 p.m. by a tour of the exhibit. Here’s the Sunday lineup:

The series continues on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 2 and 3, with the same program on both days. The double feature begins at 2 p.m. each day and will be preceded at 12:30 p.m. by an exhibit tour. The admission to the film and tour does not include admission to the Festival of Trees and Traditions. Here’s the lineup on those days:
