National Theatre Live is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world.
National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. We've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and around the world.
For more information, please visit the NT Live website.
Selected performances from the NT Live archive are now being screened. To find out what's being shown at cinemas through NT Live, visit the NT Live website.
We only offer the broadcasts through the screenings in partner venues for a limited time-frame. We are passionate about preserving the live, communal experience and the sense of event through these big screen exhibitions. We may may consider a further offer of these productions in the future, by way of DVD or online download, but have no immediate plans to do so.
Yes, we aim to repeat NT Live screenings (known as encore screenings) in participating cinemas when possible. Please visit the NT Live website for more information.
