ST. PETER'S AND THE PAPAL BASILICAS OF ROME 3D (approx. 95 minutes)

The Papal Basilicas of Rome 3D/4K is a unique film that combines history, spirituality, architecture and art. It takes its cue from the Extraordinary Jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis, which will see the faithful from all over the world pour into Rome in their millions, to cross the threshold of the Papal Basilicas and obtain a plenary indulgence. The opening of the Holy Doors will be an historical moment, certain to draw the whole world’s attention to Rome’s Papal Basilicas and be the ideal opportunity to tell the story, in spectacular 3D and 4K, using a narrative language that will emotionally involve audiences, as they witness the magnificence that lies inside the four Basilicas.

5/24 & 29 Skylight (By Experience) (not yet confirmed)

Winner of the 2015 Tony® Award for Best Revival of a Play, Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in the West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, captured live during the production's original 2014 London run by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby, An Education) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).

Skylight is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience with Helen Mirren, which was also broadcast to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

David Hare is the author of 29 plays for stage, including Plenty, Racing Demon, Amy’s View, Pravda (with Howard Brenton) and Stuff Happens. His many screenplays include The Hours and The Reader.

Skylight was originally produced at the National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End and Broadway, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play.

Tickets 20, Members $18

THE CHERRY ORCHARD

The Moscow Art Theatre

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov's classic tale, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro's interpretation asks, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer is, of course, on the stage.

Runtime: approx 180 minutes with intermission
