The National Theatre’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to the Exeter Picturehouse for a limited time for Halloween.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle, Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
Here’s the blurb about the story:
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.
The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.
Tickets are now on general sale for screenings at the Exeter Picturehouse.
See Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature on Thursday 30 and see Jonny Lee Miller as the Creature on Tuesday 11 November at 12.30.
Book by calling 0871 902 5730, on line at www.picturehouses.co.uk or in person at the cinema.
