Shakespeare Movie Night | Romeo and Juliet (Zeffirelli)
May 30 at 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
New this season will be monthly showings of some of the great film versions of Shakespeare’s plays as part of Shakespeare Readers’ Theater. Readings and films are all free and occur on Wednesdays. This program will feature seven Shakespeare films in its inaugural season. We’ll start at 5:30 with refreshments and conversation about the film to be screened and “roll the projector” at 6. Most films shown are about two hours in length. Hope you’ll join us for this new extension to the Shakespeare Readers Theater program.
This 1968 version of the bard’s famous star-crossed lovers was directed by Franco Zeffirelli – winner of 2 Academy Awards.
