Broadway is filled with movie adaptations this year, from cult classic comedies to Golden Age favorites.

To celebrate the relationship between theater and film, we’re hosting exclusive screenings of movies that inspired this year’s big hits. 

Yes, we know you can (usually) see these at home. But it’s way more fun to see them...

  • On the Big Screen
  • In clean comfy seats
  • With surround sound
  • Plus, you’ll be in a room with fellow theater fans!

Finally, you’ll enjoy an exclusive Q&A with a member of the creative team of each production. Here’s the lineup: 


Weren’t able to fly to London to see Imelda Staunton in the National Theatre’s “Follies”? We weren’t either. That’s why we’re especially excited to host a special screening of NT Live’s “Follies.” If you haven’t seen an NT Live production before, you’re in for a treat. They know how to film a live musical so that it really sounds...and you’re there!
