Cumberbatch stars in Frankenstein screening at Strode Theatre
9:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in What's On
DANNY Boyle’s dark Frankenstein (15) is being screened in Street’s Strode Theatre this Hallowe’en.
Benedict Cumberbatch (The Fifth Estate, Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Dexter) star as master and monster in the Oscar-winning film director’s cut of the gothic-horror fiction classic by Mary Wollstonecraft.
Originally performed in the National Theatre in London, Boyle’s two versions of Frankenstein are being re-screened at the venue as part of the National Theatre’s 50th anniversary celebrations – the second of which will be on November 29.
It enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, going with Cumberbatch and Lee Miller scooping the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor.
Tickets are £12 or £10 for concessions for the screening, which starts at 7.30pm at the Strode College building on October 31.
