Stage to Screen
National Theatre Live is the National Theatre of London’s program to broadcast world-class theater to cinemas around the world. It has been presented at Sierra Cinemas in Grass Valley since 2010.

Dec. 6 & 12 Antony & Cleopatra
Broadcast live from the National Theatre, Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his tragedy of politics, passion and power.

Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.

Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following broadcasts of “Twelfth Night,” “Man and Superman” and “The Beaux’ Stratagem.” SierraTheaters.com
