Theatre and art on Showroom screens

Theatre. Art. Cinema. Three of the greatest hobbies and ways to experience all types of culture, and Showroom Cinema has brought them all together in one place with our upcoming programme of Exhibition on Screen and Stage on Screen.

John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, Exhibition on Screen’s film will examine how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion.

Exhibition on Screen: John Singer Sargent, screening Tuesday 16 and Sunday 21 April, reveals Sargent’s power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention at the turn of the last century.

Our latest theatre offering, courtesy of National Theatre Live, is the much-anticipated NT Live: Nye. Michael Sheen plays Nye Bevan, in a surreal and spectacular journey through the life and legacy of the man who transformed Britain’s welfare state and created the NHS.

Confronted with death, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan’s deepest memories lead him on a mind-bending journey back through his life; from childhood to mining underground, Parliament and fights with Churchill. Written by Tim Price and directed by Rufus Norris (Small Island), this epic new Welsh fantasia will be broadcast live from the National Theatre at 7pm on Tuesday 23 April, with an encore on Tuesday 7 May and Thursday 9 May.

Something wicked this way comes…to Showroom Cinema screens in Macbeth: Ralph Fiennes & Indira Varma on Thursday 2 May and Sunday 5 May. A couple corrupted by their relentless lust for power have blood on their hands. Witness the gripping tale of greed, murder, deception, and superstition in cinemas for a limited time only. Once you cross the line, you can never turn back.

Tony and BAFTA Award winner Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra, Schindler's List) and Olivier Award winner Indira Varma (Present Laughter, Game of Thrones) star in a brand-new ‘full-voltage visceral’ production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Filmed live at Dock X, a custom-built theatre space in London, this critically acclaimed staging of Macbeth ‘that quickens the pulse, then goes for the jugular’ (Financial Times) will be unmissable on the big screen.
