NTL: Frankenstein (MA 15+)

NTL: Frankenstein movie poster

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (ElementaryTrainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. 

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 increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Please note: Frankenstein has a BBFC rating of 15, and contains a scene of sexual violence.

Saturday screening - Benedict Cumberbatch plays Creature, Jonny Lee Miller plays Dr Frankenstein.
Wednesday screening - Jonny Lee Miller plays Creature, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Dr Frankenstein.
