For the thousands of Benedict Cumberbatch fans who missed out on tickets to his take on Shakespeare's most tragic role, the NT Live screening is an absolute must. From the comfort of your local cinema, you can watch 'Hamlet' screened live from the Barbican Theatre. It's almost as good as watching the real thing. Don't miss also the Encore (not live) screening late in the month. The show itself is directed by Lyndsey Turner with Cumberbatch being joined on stage by Ciaran Hinds as Claudius, Sian Brooke as Ophelia and Anastasia Hille as Gertrude.
RECOMMENDED: 'Hamlet' at the Barbican guide
The live screening will take place on October 15. At various cinemas around London, including Curzon Mayfair, Marble Arch Odeon, Curzon Chelsea, Curzon Victoria, Fulham Road Cineworld, Picadilly Live, Picturehouse Centra and Haymarket Cineworld.
