About the film

British Council and BFI present the Shakespere on Film collection, a series of screenings of prominent Shakespeare film titles across the country. Shakespeare’s immortal tale of ambition, lust and murderous treachery is brilliantly modernized in this 20th century masterpiece, set in a fascist, comic-book vision on 1930s London. 

Directed by Richard Loncraine, this 1995 masterpiece features Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent and a young Robert Downey Jr in their most memorable and captivating performances. 

The film is based on Richard Eyre's acclaimed stage adapatation.

Entry to the event is free and open to individuals 15 years and above. Seating on a first come first served basis. Prior registration is necessary.
