ENCORE SCREENINGS OF THE AUDIENCE
AS PART OF NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE SERIES
AT CINEMA ART THEATER
Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”), plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award®-winning production of “The Audience.” Captured live from London’s West End in 2013, the original broadcast returns to international cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch. [UK, 2013, 180 minutes, Rated: PG].
“Wholly tremendous,” claims “The Daily Telegraph.”
National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project that presents the best of British theatre live from the London stage on film to cinemas across the UK and around the world.
The screenings will be at 1:00 pm on Monday, June 17 and 6:00 pm on Tuesday, June 18. Admission is $18 for RBFS members, $20 general admission and $15 for ages 15 and under. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater 30 minutes before the screening.
