NT Live: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

NT Live: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Encore: Sunday, June 4, 1 PM

Sonia Friedman Productions presents Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.

In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks.

“Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.”—-The Guardian

 


 

Turner Big Screen Classics: The Godfather

Turner Big Screen Classics: The Godfather

Wednesday, June 7, 7PM

Rated: R

Starring: Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan
Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
Screenplay: Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola

Popularly viewed as one of the best American films ever made, the multi-generational crime saga The Godfather is a touchstone of cinema: one of the most widely imitated, quoted, and lampooned movies of all time. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star as Vito Corleone and his youngest son, Michael, respectively. It is the late 1940s in New York and Corleone is, in the parlance of organized crime, a “godfather” or “don,” the head of a Mafia family. Michael, a free thinker who defied his father by enlisting in the Marines to fight in World War II, has returned a captain and a war hero. Having long ago rejected the family business, Michael shows up at the wedding of his sister, Connie (Talia Shire), with his non-Italian girlfriend, Kay (Diane Keaton), who learns for the first time about the family “business.”

Exhibition on Screen: Michaelangelo, Love and Death

Exhibition on Screen: Michaelangelo, Love and Death

Tuesday, June 13, 7 PM

Directed by David Bickerstaff.

The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man?

A virtuoso craftsman, Michelangelo’s artistry is evident in everything he touched. Beautiful and diverse works such as the towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling still leave us breathless today.

Spanning his 89 years, Michelangelo – Love and Death, takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy. Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made.

A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time.

NT Live: Salomé

NT Live: Salomé

Thursday, June 22, 7PM

The story has been told before, but never like this.

An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre. ‘Epic. A near-perfect production.’ Guardian (on Les Blancs)

 


 

Summer Exhibition - Harper Blanchet: Abstract Paintings

Summer Exhibition - Harper Blanchet: Abstract Paintings

July 1 – October 4, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 8 – 4:30 – 6:30 pm

Harper Blanchet is a visual artist, painter, photographer and poet/writer who lives and works out of his studios in Falls Village, Connecticut and Phoenicia, New York. Harper rarely shows his work publicly, preferring to sell quietly to private buyers and collectors, so The Moviehouse is delighted to be able to showcase his extraordinary work this Summer. His influences include composition, content, form, shape, space/spacing, the edge, line, light and shadow and objects in relationship to each other. Another giant influence are doors and windows – passing from one space to another, either visually or physically, or both.
