Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting), “NT Live: Frankenstein” has become an international sensation, seen by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. In this new adaptation, Olivier Award winners Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, “Sherlock”) and Jonny Lee Miller (“Elementary” on CBS, Trainspotting) alternate in the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. National Theatre Live filmed Frankenstein twice so audiences could experience Cumberbatch and Miller in each role.

The critically-acclaimed Broadway revival of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men directed by Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), stars Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner James Franco (127 Hours), BAFTA and Tony Award nominee Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”) and Tony and Olivier Award winner Jim Norton, and was nominated for two 2014 Tony Awards and shattered the house record at the Longacre Theatre multiple times during its limited 19 week engagement.  Of Mice and Men tells the story of an unlikely pair of friends drifting from job to job across the farms and fields of California, holding fast to their dream of one day having an acre of land they can call their own.

“These stunning stage performances give local communities the chance to gather together for an experience in movie theaters like no other,” Fathom Events executive vice president Shelly Maxwell said.
