Join us for three free nights of Shakespeare-inspired films in partnership with Cinema St. Louis.
- Friday 5/20 – The Lion King (1994)
- Saturday 5/21 – Theatre of Blood (CANCELED)
- Sunday 5/22 – 10 Things I Hate About You
8:15 p.m. in Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park
The weekend includes 10 Things I Hate About You starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, 1994’s The Lion King, based loosely on Hamlet, and the St. Louis-born Vincent Price’s Theatre of Blood (rated R), a camp horror-comedy in which a slighted Shakespearean actor (Price) seeks poetic and murderous revenge on his critics – killing them in the same ways made infamous by Shakespeare.
Content warning: Theatre of Blood is rated R for mature content and violence.
Free to attend, no reservations required.
Bring your own chairs and blankets and set up on the grass in the beautiful Shakespeare Glen just a few short weeks before we open Much Ado About Nothing. The screen will be set up on the stage platform.
