In this stop-motion-animated film from writer/director Wes Anderson, an outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy journeys there to rescue his dog Spots, and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy.

National Theatre Live: Macbeth

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Rufus Norris

 Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy, directed by Rufus Norris (The Threepenny Opera, London Road), will see Rory Kinnear (Young Marx, Othello) and Anne-Marie Duff (Oil, Suffragette) return to the National Theatre to play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.

Glorious,” raved the New York Times when Joyce DiDonato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. “Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.” Now, for the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production.

Stassya Pacheco returns for a pre-opera lecture prior to every Saturday live transmission, 30 minutes before the start time. Also, Saturday operas offer the option of pre-ordering your lunch from Pacioni's Market. Pre-order lunches are made up during the opera and ready for you to enjoy during the intermission. We will also have recorded encore screenings of all performances.

Skagit Academy presents: Junie B. Jones, The Musical

It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend, Lucille, doesn't want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting.

National Theatre Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start.

Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. Now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: The Threepenny Opera, No Man's Land, Amadeus, Saint Joan, and Hedda Gabler. 

With The NT announcement of their 2017 season, a number of new events have been earmarked for future NT Live productions including Twelfth Night, Angels in America - Parts I & II and Salomé.

In the Art Bar: Stephen Hunter

"My first art teacher believed that everyone is naturally an artist and that creating art was a soul-enhancing endeavor. I’ve found this belief strengthened since moving to the Northwest and coming to know and appreciate many of the fine artists here. In my work I attempt to depict colorful images which inspire contemplation."

Meet Stephen on Saurday, May 5 from 2:00 - 5:00pm for the Mount Vernon Downtown Association Art Walk.
