Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

NT Live: Leopoldstadt.

National Theatre Live


Leopoldstadt

A new play by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Patrick Marber


Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.


At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.


We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.


Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.


★★★★ ‘Tom Stoppard’s new masterwork is an early contender for play of the year.’ - Evening Standard


★★★★ ‘Tom Stoppard delivers an unforgettable play from the heart.’ - Telegraph


★★★★ ‘Stoppard’s back at his most personal. A glittering triumph.’ - Daily Mail        



The show is 140 minutes with no interval.


Tickets £16 General Admission, £13 Student

West Side Story (12A)

West Side Story

Director - Steven Spielberg

Cast includes Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose

Duration - 166 mins.


This 4pm screening is socially distanced.


A new adaptation of the beloved stage musical (and a loving tribute to its 1961 big-screen iteration) from director Steven Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter Tony Kushner, West Side Story follows two teenagers from different ethnic backgrounds who fall in love in 1950s New York City.


As their romance intensifies, they find themselves drawn into the heart of a conflict between two warring gangs.


Mr. Spielberg did not waste his time-or ours. The new West Side Story is simply fabulous. - Observer


There's a substrata of genius-level artists at work here: from Spielberg himself, who delivers his best film in nearly 20 years, to the late, great Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins , Leonard Bernstein and William Shakespeare -- and you can really feel it. - Time Out


Spielberg quite rightly doesn't try hiding any of those stage origins. His mastery of technique is thrilling; I gave my heart to this poignant American fairytale of doomed love. - Guardian

The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage

by Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery

directed by Nicholas Hytner


Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.


Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.


Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.


Show duration will be confirmed nearer the time
