A scene from the live theatre production, Macbeth.

Catch the next screening in National Theatre Live’s 2018 season at Cinema Nouveau with a modern day take on Shakespeare’s tragedy of moral decline, Macbeth. 

In the ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war, ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.

With a running time of 2 hours and 40 minutes, the intense and terrifying new production was filmed live at the National Theatre in London, directed by the NT’s artistic director, Rufus Norris. Double Olivier award-winner Rory Kinnear plays Macbeth (Othello, Skyfall), and Olivier and BAFTA nominee Anne-Marie Duff plays Lady Macbeth (Suffragette, Shameless).
