Experience the world's best theatre captured in thrilling detail on the big screen.

This is not a cinema – this is the world's greatest stage. It’s a front row seat, the royal circle, a bird’s eye view. It’s the rustling of programmes, the thunderous applause on opening night. It’s the sword fights, the death scenes, the ill-fated lovers. It’s bold, flawlessly executed drama, comedy and tragedy captured in the highest definition. This is theatre how it was always meant to be seen.

We broadcast live productions from the National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company, the Globe and more, and we use 4K projectors and Dolby surround sound to catapult you into the centre of the action. 


We show two types of Big Screen Theatre: live showings (which are captured and broadcast as they happen) and encore showings (live broadcasts that have been taped). There are no adverts or trailers played before live performances, so make sure you arrive right on time so you don’t miss a minute.

If the live performance has an interval or two, the broadcast will too. You can stretch your legs or order a drink at the bar.
After the show, clap and cheer as loud and long as you want. There’s a thrill in knowing that with live-streamed productions, as actor Damien Molony said, "There’ll be “standing ovations all over the world, all at the same time."


If the stage is your calling, you'll love Big Screen Dance.
