Shakespeare On The Silverscreen: Macbeth

We had a great time screening Hamlet and we hope you'll join us for Macbeth, as we continue our partnership with Aksarben Cinema (67th and Center).
February 24 @ 6 PM
Directed by Phillip Casson
1979 - 145 Minutes - Not Rated
$10 Admission
About the Film: Macbeth is a daring member of the Scottish military who receives a revelation from three menacing sorceresses that he will someday become the King of Scotland. This information gives him a thirst for power, and with prompting from his wife, Lady Macbeth, he kills the current leader in order to take the throne. But he must continue to commit murders to keep his actions a secret, and soon, no one is safe. Starring Ian McKellan and Judi Dench.

Following the film, a discussion covering the film itself, the history of its production, and the interpretation of Shakespeare's texts, will be led by Vincent Carlson-Brown, NS Artistic Director, and guest scholar, D. Scott Glasser, Professor and Theatre Coordinator at UNO's School of the Arts.
