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

Bolshoi Ballet: COPPÉLIA – Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 1:00 LIVE
Swanhilda notices her fiancé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems, and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson. The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

The Man Who Laughs - Berklee Silent Film Orchestra Live
Thursday, June 14, 2018

Thursday June 14, 2018 at 7:00PM

The Berklee Silent Film Orchestra (BSFO) returns to the Avon Cinema for their second silent film concert, on Thursday, June 14, 2018. The award-winning group will perform their original score, commissioned by Universal Pictures, to the 1928 silent classic The Man Who Laughs.

Called “visually dazzling” by Leonard Maltin, and “one of the final treasures of German silent Expressionism” by Roger Ebert, The Man Who Laughs (1928) is an emotionally powerful melodrama directed by Paul Leni. Based on the Victor Hugo novel, the film’s central character was later to become the inspiration for The Joker!

Honored by the Boston Society of Film Critics, the BSFO has garnered lengthy standing ovations for their original film scores, in live to picture performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, New York’s Tony Bennett Concert Hall, and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

The BSFO returns following their amazing silent film concert for Battleship Potemkin, performed here last January.

Tickets for the 7:00 film concert are $30, and are available on the Avon Cinema’s website. All seats for the 7:00 film concert are $30.00 and are General Seating. No Passes, Value Cards or Gift Cards will be honored. A $1.00 processing fee per ticket will be charged for online ticket sales. All online tickets will be held at Will Call, which will open 1 hour before the film concert. Tickets can be purchased on our Special Events Page.

Exhibition on Screen: I, CLAUDE MONET - Thursday June 21, 2018 at 6:30

Directed by Phil Grabsky
Running time: 87 minutes 

After premiering in Season 4 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN, I, Claude Monet is back by popular demand, revealing the heart and soul of arguably the world’s most loved artist. 
Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. However, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his Giverny garden, his humour, insight and love of life are revealed.  
Told through Monet’s own words and shot on location at the very spots he painted, the film features his most loved paintings in an unforgettable, immersive art experience.
