Subject: Shakespeare's Globe London Cinema Series
This summer and fall, NCM Fathom, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London and Art Alliance Media invite you to experience classical Shakespeare titles in movie theaters nationwide. Shakespeare’s Globe London Cinema Series will transport you to the Globe Theatre in London to experience these plays from the front row “pit”, just as Shakespeare’s audience did over 400 years ago.
This four-part series continues with Henry IV Part 1 on Monday, August 1; Henry IV Part 2 on Thursday, August 18; and Henry VIII on Thursday, September 15. Each show is at 6:30pm local time.
The Globe Theatre provides an intriguing historical backdrop to these productions. Originally built in 1599 by Shakespeare’s playing company, the Theatre housed Shakespeare’s plays until it was destroyed in a fire in 1613 after a malfunction with a prop cannon during Henry VIII, rebuilt and destroyed again in 1666 during the Great Fire of London. Each of the Shakespeare’s Globe London Cinema Series performances will include a historical perspective on the Globe – the reconstruction process to restore the Theatre, the work of the Globe today, and a behind-the-scenes look at each production with interviews from the actors and creative team involved.
We have created a microsite full of event details and digital offerings including banners, trailersm and social media posts.
