FRANKENSTEIN w/ Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature
National Theatre Live's thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand. Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park). We will be showing two versions one with Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature & Jonny Lee Miller as Dr. Franktenstein (10/25) and then in reverse roles (SO COOL!) on 10/29. The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.
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 disturbing classic gothic tale.
