We saw both versions, it was fantastic! They did amazing in both roles but we definitely preferred Cumberbatch as the creature and Johnny Lee-Miller as the Dr.

We hope you enjoyed last night's Hamlet screenings and apologise again for the short break in transmission to UK venues due to adverse weather conditions (international screenings will not be affected). Here again is Rory Kinnear delivering one of Shakespeare's most famous soliloquies, 'To be, or not to be'.

Available until 31 October 2013.

You can also download a free PDF of the Hamlet programme at http://ow.ly/q5IUV.

The Habit of Art: Production Gallery

★★★★★
'Performances of comic perfection.' Daily Telegraph

National Theatre Live’s 2010 broadcast of Alan Bennett’s acclaimed play The Habit of Art, with Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings and Frances de la Tour, returns to cinemas as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations.

Benjamin Britten, sailing uncomfortably close to the wind with his new opera, Death in Venice, seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend, W H Auden. During this imagined meeting, their first for twenty-five years, they are observed and interrupted by, amongst others, their future biographer and a young man from the local bus station.

Alan Bennett’s play is as much about the theatre as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and at the ethics of biography. It reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion’s spent: ultimately, on the habit of art.
