National Theatre Live 2016-17

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. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.

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.


Though each live broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the 'best seat in the house' view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.

Satellites allow the productions to be broadcast live, without delay, to cinemas throughout the UK as well as many European venues. Other venues view the broadcasts 'as live' according to their time zone, or at a later date. We record this first broadcast on the day of performance (usually Thursday mornings at 10:00am because of the time difference) and then screen it at a later time.

Advance Tickets: $18 general, $16 seniors, $14 students and children ($16 general, $14 seniors, $12 students and children for encores), with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre members. 10% discount for the purchase of 4 or more productions in the 2017 season.
