Stage Plays/Music/Art via HD Satellite

I, CLAUDE MONET Sun (Mar 26) 2pm

In the Gallery Series in HD, Season 4

SYNOPSIS: In this striking film from award-winning director PhilGrabsky,
we take a new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words.
Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th  centuries. Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, often suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide.
An unmissable cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

Runtime: 90 minutes

Tickets: General and Senior $15/ Under 18 yrs $10.  Available at the door.


TWELFTH NIGHT (Theatre from London) – Sun (Apr 9) 2017 2pm

Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia.
