National Theatre (NT) Live is an initiative by the National Theatre to broadcast live performances onto cinema screens around the world. Since its first season in June 2009, over 1.75 million people have experienced the work of National Theatre Live in cinemas worldwide.

In 2013, Palace Amusement Company launched National Theatre Live, in keeping with its schedule of alternative content programming, a revolutionary phenomenon facilitated by digital cinema which makes it possible to show live events such as plays, opera, sports and concerts, some in 3D. A number of productions are coming soon in the series.

Twelfth Night (August 20, 2017) is a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Tamsin Greig is Malvolia and it is directed by Simon Godwin.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (September 10, 2017) is a brilliantly funny situation comedy. Award-winning actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral) are in the production, which will broadcast live from the Old Vic theatre in London.




Obsession (September 24, 2017) is a chilling tale of passion and destruction. Jude Law (The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View From the Bridge) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti's 1943 film.

Peter Pan (October 8, 2017) is a riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues and is a delight for children and adults alike.

The National Theatre's screenings, recorded live and made available to cinemas around the world, can be seen at Palace Cineplex on scheduled Sundays at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are on sale at the box office, Palace Cineplex, and via the web at, with any major credit card, or a Palace Card.
