National Theatre Live presents Frankenstein

A film by Danny Boyle starring Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch

 

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returned to the theatre to direct this visionary production with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.


“A thrill. The most viscerally exciting and stunning show in town.”
The Telegraph

“A monster hit.”
Time Out London

Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.

First broadcast to cinemas in 2011, don’t miss this second chance to catch Danny Boyle’s electrifying stage production as encore screenings take place across the UK and around the world from June 2012.

Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature throughout the show’s run at the National Theatre. Many cinemas will offer the chance to see both of these versions.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Performance Running Time: Approximately 2 hours (no interval)

Suitable only for 15yrs+

 


 
 
 

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

A film by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick

 

This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry). The film — a bizarre musical co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien — bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.

Donnie Darko

A film by Richard Kelly starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Mary McDonnell

 

A troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a large bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after narrowly escaping a bizarre accident. We’ve all been there, right? We are screening the original theatrical version of Donnie Darko, not that weird director’s cut that tries to explain too much. Come see it how you’d like to remember it.

My Bloody Valentine

A film by George Milhalka starring Paul Kelman, Lori Hallier, Neil Affleck

 

Of all the holiday-themed slashers, this film is closest to our hearts! There’s a big Valentine’s day party planned in the little mining town of Valentine’s Bluff. It is the first V-Day party in twenty years after a horrific tragedy marred the date for the townsfolk. When a box of candy arrives containing an eerie warning and a blood-soaked heart, the elder citizens can’t believe it could be happening again…Screening from a vintage 35mm print featuring extra gore never shown theatrically!
