The Live Cinema Conference
19.00 on 27th May 2016 at King's College London
A novel experience which draws together multiple elements, sensations and new collaborations from the live cinema and event cinema domains. Centered on a film screening of the play The Hangmen (by Martin McDonagh) which was originally streamed live to cinemas on 3rd March to conclude its successful West End run. The event reintroduces The Hangmen’s theatrical context and the liveness of its original broadcast through a unique fusion of performance, film and food in a playful re-play of the play. For the first time, the forms and aesthetics of ‘event’ cinema, ‘live’ cinema and promenade theatre are united in a hybrid, multi-layered and sensory experience, which promises to delight, surprise and enthrall the audience.
In partnership with NT Live and Omnibus
