Broadway is filled with movie adaptations these past few years, 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 current 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. We've already enjoyed "Mean Girls" and "My Fair Lady" together. Here’s what's coming up next: 

SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob is a true cross-media hit: TV, movie, and now Broadway! Join the SpongeBob fan community as we learn how the "simple sponge" became a smash hit Broadway show. We'll enjoy some of the TV episodes that inspired it (on a HUGE screen), and then hear from the producer directly.
