Two great films coming this month!

Nebraska Shakespeare is teaming up with Aksarben Cinema for the return of SHAKESPEARE ON THE SILVER SCREEN:

FEBRUARY 21 @ 6 PM
R
for violence | 2h 3min | Tickets $10
Ralph Fienne's directorial debut. The citizens of Rome are hungry. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. Rome is bloody. Manipulated and out-maneuvered by politicians and even his own mother Volumnia, Coriolanus is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius.

'StunningThis film is a triumph for Ralph Fiennes'
– Baz Bamigboye, Daily Mail

(Also known as Much Ado About Nothing) Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. Set amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, where youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins out. The Royal Shakespeare Company's performance is perfect for the whole family.

'Terrific…continual comic verve'
