Together with National Theatre Live and BY Experience, NCM Fathom Events will present the acclaimed hit Frankenstein* in select movie theaters on Wednesday, June 6 and Thursday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. local time. Directed by Danny Boyle, the play by Nick Dear is based on Mary Shelley’s gothic novel and stars Olivier Award winners Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller. Originally performed and pre-recorded live in March 2011, Frankenstein will be broadcast to more than 200 U.S. movie theaters through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.

Tickets for National Theatre Live – Frankenstein are available at participating theater box offices and online at For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

In the stage production, Cumberbatch and Miller alternated the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Frankenstein was filmed twice so that cinema audiences may see the actors in each role. Frankenstein has won a number of awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for best actor for Cumberbatch and Miller as well as best lighting design; two Evening Standard Awards; two Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards and the What’s on Stage Awards for best director.

"Fans have asked to see this award-winning production in their local movie theaters and Fathom is thrilled to be able to answer the demand,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events.
