The Audience – Monday, June 3, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. local time
Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen), plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award®-winning production of The Audience, captured live from London’s West End in 2013. For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.  Featuring post-screening talk-back with Helen Mirren and director Stephen Daldry.

Hamlet – Monday, July 8, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. local time
Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s SherlockDoctor Strange) plays the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, now seen by more than 1 million people worldwide. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
