Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
This performance, recorded at The Globe in 2013, revisits their award-winning Twelfth Night of 2002. An all-male Original Practices production explores the clothing, music, dance and settings possible in the Globe of around 1601.
The superb performances include Rylance’s Olivia and Fry’s hilarious Malvolio.

David Lean Cinema, Croydon on Thursday 25th May 2017
Please note that at least until the end of this month, our Arts Café Bar service will be repositioned due to work to create a new door from this area into the Braithwaite Hall. This is possible despite the Hall’s Grade II listed interior, because the door will be positioned where one existed many years ago. An additional exit, for fire safety reasons, will make it possible to accommodate more people, making a wider range of events viable in this venue.
During this work, we still expect to be able to provide refreshments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, via a table placed nearby. We also plan to open before Thursday’s 11:00 screening of Twelfth Night. It’s possible that we may have to temporarily move our Box Office at some point, so don’t be alarmed if you come to buy tickets and don’t immediately see it! Read More………
Six consecutive days of screenings at the David Lean in the last week – Friday’s was a charity event – has reinforced the progress made since 2014, when Thursday screenings were less frequently supplemented by others. Last Thursday’s The Handmaiden was notable for being our third consecutive 18 certificate film to attract a capacity audience (following T2 Trainspotting and Elle), providing reassurance that this certificate isn’t a commercial liability.
There’s another opportunity to see A Silent Voice on Tuesday. It’s a must for supporters who have enjoyed Japanese animation such as Your Name, but it should intrigue anyone attracted by “a beguiling film: subtle, sensuous and delicate” (The Guardian). Tickets will be available at our box office. Thursday’s A Quiet Passion, the acclaimed portrait of poet Emily Dickinson, has proved so popular that we must recommend advance booking if you plan to see this; particularly in relation to the almost sold out 14:30pm screening.
