Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s production of “The Winter’s Tale” comes to select U.S. cinemas for a special one-night event on Monday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m. local time.

The Guardian” gives the staging four stars and “The Spectator” raves, “Branagh has produced a better version of this tricky play than any [recalled], and its beautifully rendered externals are exquisite.”

“The Winter’s Tale” will be showing at select theatres across the country on Monday, November 30, including Citywalk at Universal City. Visit our AirTalk page or http://www.branaghtheatrelive.com for more cinema information.
