‘Frankenstein’ from National Theatre

‘Frankenstein’ from National Theatre

 

Frankenstein (15) recorded live at National Theatre is showing at the Dome Cinema, Worthing on Thursday October 30th and at the Connaught Cinema, Worthing on Sunday November 2nd.

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 (TrainspottingSlumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A SlaveStar Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

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 deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

This performance features Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstein.

Show times: Thursday October 30th at 8.00 pm at the Dome Cinema and Sunday November 2nd at 2.00 pm at the Connaught Cinema.

The Dome Cinema is at 21-22 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront and the Connaught Cinema is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
