Theatre classics meet the big screen at VUE Thurrock

Theatre classics meet the big screen at VUE

TWO Shakespearian classics and a star-studded comedy are among the fantastic events being brought to the big screen by Vue Thurrock this April.

Firstly, guests will be offered another opportunity to catch the National Theatre’s adaptation of Twelfth Night on Thursday 6th April. Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig, star of Friday Night Dinner and Black Books, featuring as a transformed Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

The Shakespearian tales don’t end there either, with Vue also bringing Julius Caesar to the big screen on Wednesday 26th April. Performed by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the politics of spin and betrayal turns to violence as mutiny rumbles through the corridors of Caesar’s empire. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.

Johnny Carr, Alternative Content Manager at Vue UK and Ireland, commented: “Our event cinema calendar continues to go from strength to strength, offering a massive variety of amazing content throughout the year.

We’re also excited to be screening Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead on Thursday 20th April. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. It features Daniel Radcliffe as the star of this brilliantly funny comedy, broadcast live from the Old Vic Theatre in London.”
