As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.

Acclaimed as a leading man of the London stage long before achieving international superstardom as Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch returns to the greatest theatre role of them all – Hamlet – following the runaway success of Frankenstein at the National Theatre in 2011. Reinterpreted with a visual grandeur by sought-after director Lyndsey Turner, this version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet dissects the Prince of Denmark and his darkening world with political precision and psychological insight.

Featuring a stellar ensemble of stage and screen talent – including Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones), Anastasia Hille, Siân Brooke and Jim Norton – this production of Hamlet is the fastest-selling play in London’s theatre history. All 100,000 advance seats of the 12-week run sold out in just seven hours.

This is your second chance to see this phenomenal Hamlet – this time from the comfort of your favourite cinema.
