For one night only, on Tuesday the 13th of March, Event Cinema will be hosting a unique reimagining of Macbeth. For a taster of what to expect you can watch the trailer below.
Shot entirely on green screen, and starring The Last Kingdom and Luther’s Mark Rowley, director Kit Monkman (The Knife That Killed Me) adaptation bridges the gap between theatre and film to create a wholly new type of imaginative space. This radical new adaptation puts the audience’s engagement with the story centre-stage, amplifying the theatrical context of the original and creating innovative and cinematic vistas, whilst maintaining the language and themes of Shakespeare’s original play.

Using background matte painting and computer modelling to generate the world in which the action plays out, the green screen allows Monkman to create his vision of a multi-tiered globe in which the characters play out their various fates. The fluidity of the cameras’ movement around this globe aims to give the audience a constant perspective of the action as opposed to individual, isolated scenes.
Those who attend the screening will also experience an additional fifteen minutes of footage documenting ‘The Making Of Macbeth: The Film’. This exclusive pre-show content is also accompanied by an exclusive Macbeth keepsake for every audience member.
