Book Now Throne of Blood

Thursday 27 February at 6:30 pm

*Only 30 tickets available*

Following the success of our Dickens’ Film & Food nights, we present a season of Shakespeare on film. We’ve selected our films using a recent Guardian ranking of  ‘Best Shakespeare Films’ – and a themed meal will be part of your ticket.

Throne of Blood 1957 Japanese (subtitled) 110 mins

“Little remains of Shakespeare’s script, but in Akira Kurosawa’s masterly interpretation of Macbeth the poetry is all visual: brooding castle gates, misty battlefields, empty rooms where only the worst will happen. Reimagining the story as a samurai epic, Kurosawa pares the tragedy down to its essentials and turns it into a thrilling cinematic experience –both utterly different from the play and wholly in its spirit. In the lead, Toshirô Mifune roars and bellows like a wild beast, and as his wife Isuzu Yamada journeys from venomous malevolence to terrified insanity” Guardian
