National Theatre Live:
All About Eve
Tuesday April 30, 2019 at 6:20PM
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
Due to the overwhelming response to our first screening, we're scheduling a return engagement on Tuesday, April 30th at 6:20.
Gillian Anderson (X-Files) and Lily James (Mamma Mia!) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.
All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?
Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
AllAbout Eve is adapted by Ivo van Hove from the Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and the play "The Wisdom Of Eve" by Mary Orr.

Exhibition on Screen:
Van Gogh & Japan
Thursday June 6, 2019 at 6:30
"I envy the Japanese" Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based - VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh.
Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.
