    Simulcast in full HD and 5.1 Surround Sound. Tickets are $15 for DFS Members, $16 for Seniors or Students, $18 for General Admission.


    Broadcast live from the National Theatre, Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power.

    The National Theatre’s autumn blockbuster, receiving multiple ????? reviews, this production is slick, stylish and modern with a huge revolving set (including a swimming pool on stage), a big supporting cast and gorgeous costumes, and real snakes on stage (!)

    In the aftermath of Julius Caesar’s assassination, General Mark Antony (Ralph Fiennes) now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra (Sophie Okonedo) and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. Having neglected his political duties whilst in Egypt, Antony returns to Rome, to attempt to restore his political position. Torn between his duty to Rome and his devotion to Cleopatra, Antony’s actions spark a war which threatens to destroy their love.

    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.
