As part of the MultiCulture Britain project, Multikino and British Council present an encore screening of King Lear, a five-star Chichester Festival Theatre production, with Ian McKellen shining as King Lear.
Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.
Digital DCP, High Definition projection with Digital Dolby Surround, in English with Polish subtitles.
Running time: 230 minutes
The screenings will take place on 12 September at 19.00 in the following Multikino cinemas: Bydgoszcz, Gdańsk, Katowice, Lublin, Łódź, Olsztyn, Poznań Stary Browar, Rzeszów, Szczecin, Warszawa Ursynów, Warszawa Targówek, Warszawa Złote Tarasy, Wrocław Pasaż Grunwaldzki and Zabrze.
