Come see Skylight, the next Royal National Theatre recorded production in our Fall 2014 film series!
Skylight stars Carey Mulligan (The Great Gatsby) as Kyra Hollis, a schoolteacher who runs into Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a recently widowed man from her past. As they attempt to rekindle their previous relationship, they find themselves in a "battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires." To find out more about this production that the Daily Express calls "complex, thrilling, and provocative," click HERE
Skylight will be available for your viewing pleasure on Friday, November 14th at 6:30pm in the Estep Multimedia Center located inside ECU's University Center.
Tickets are $10/general admission and $5/Students.
In only seven (YES SEVEN!) days, you can experience this:

$5/Students $10/General Admission.
This is one (or shall we say TWO) that you won't want to miss!
Come experience not one, but TWO Royal National Theatre recorded performances of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, starring Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park).
On Wednesday, October 29th at 7:00, Cumberbatch will play Dr. Victor Frankenstein and Miller will be Frankenstein's creature, and on Thursday, October 30th at 7:00, their roles will be reversed as Cumberbatch plays the creature and Miller as the creator, Dr. Frankenstein!
You don't want to miss Nick Dear's adaptation that The Daily Mail called “memorable production [that] will doubtless be spoken of for years to come”
This production from 2011 was a total sell-out during the live performances, and according to the National Theatre Live website, "The broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world."
If you want to be part of those lucky people who get to experience these enthralling performances, then join us in the Estep Multimedia Center inside ECU's University Center at 7:00pm on Wednesday, October 29th AND Thursday, October 30th.
General Admission is $10/show and Students can experience these performances for only $5/show.
