Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, Doctor Strange) plays the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Now seen by over 900,000 people worldwide, the original broadcast returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet (Benedict Cumberbatch) rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Time Out remarks, “One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever.”
This production includes an intermission; a lunch menu will be available before showtime that you can order from for the intermission. The Friday 9/27 screening features English subtitles as part of our accessibility initiative.
