Captured in 2010 from the prestigious and internationally renowned Globe Theatre in London — Shakespeare’s theatrical London home – Shakespeare’s Globe London Cinema Series will close with a screening of Henry VIII.
This work is based upon the life of Henry VIII of England. During a performance of this play at London’s Globe Theatre in 1613, a canon used for special effects ignited the theatre’s thatched roof and beams, burning the original structure to the ground. This play was famous in its own day as Shakespeare’s most sumptuous and spectacular play, and this production presents a gorgeous pageant of masques and royal ceremony.
