Mary Shelley's 1818 horror classic, Frankenstein, gets a 21st-century update in this innovative British production, directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) and adapted by Nick Dear. The high-definition recording was made on the London Stage of the acclaimed National Theatre, and now this 2011 broadcast returns to the big screen as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations. The classic tale of a mad scientist and his ghoulish creation, the production features actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), who both won Olivier Awards for alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.

Though each live broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theater, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the 'best seat in the house' view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.
Satellites allow the productions to be broadcast live, without delay, to cinemas throughout the UK as well as many European venues. Other venues view the broadcasts 'as live' according to their time zone, or at a later date.
