UK National Theatre's Frankenstein @ BC Moma

Is it a play? Is it a movie? Is it Frankenstein? The UK National Theatre production Frankenstein is making its way to Bejing's Broadway Cinemathique (BC) Moma this Friday and Saturday. It is indeed a play, a critically acclaimed performance that has been filmed and brought to screen. It is the first time the live edition, directed by Danny Boyle (of Slumdog Millionaire fame), is being screened in China.

The performance proved to be one of the most successful productions for the National Theatre in 2011. The highlight comes as Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller take turns to play Frankenstein. The film hits Beijing thanks to collaboration between the KT Wong Foundation and the British National Theatre.

When: 7:30 pm, Friday and Saturday (June 29 and 30)

Where: BC Moma, F3, building T4, 1 Xiangheyuan Road, Dongcheng district

Tickets: Free
