Poster for National Theatre Live: WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? (CTC)

National Theatre Live (NT Live) is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world. Since its first season, which began in June 2009 with the acclaimed production of Phédre starring Helen Mirren, over 1.5million people have now experienced the National’s work on over 500 cinema screens worldwide.

"I grew up in Manchester in the 60s. If I had been able to see Olivier's National Theatre at my local cinema, I would have gone all the time."
- Nicholas Hytner, Artistic Director of The National Theatre, London.
