National Theatre Live cinema – or National Theatre on Screen – launched in 2009 with a broadcast of Phèdre starring Helen Mirren, and has since broadcast over twenty other productions live from the National Theatre in cinemas, UK and worldwide. Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience, with cameras carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that audiences get the 'best seat in the house'. National Theatre on Screen invites the spirit of the National Theatre, in allowing their best productions to reach as wide an audience as possible.
National Theatre Live: The Hard Problem, Tom Stoppard
UK cinemas welcome the new Stoppard play to over 550 screens nationwide: broadcasting live from the Dorfman Theatre, Stoppard The Hard Problem will be showing at NT live cinemas, London and nationwide, on 16 April.
Over a decade since his last play at the National and five years after writing The Royal Court's Rock’n’Roll, Tom Stoppard's new “brain-science” play swiftly sold out. It has provoked mixed reviews: critical reactions range from an impressive four stars to a distinctly disappointed two. If you missed out on a coveted ticket, book now to see The Hard Problem on screen and decide for yourself.

West: Cinemas showing The Hard Problem in West London: The Curzon Victoria
Surreptitiously housed in this minimalist, glass-fronted building, the new Curzon Victoria looks more like a private member’s bar than a cinema. Stylishly lit, with spacious seats housed in intimate, comfortable screening rooms, it's a gem that's still relatively unknown.
