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.

I loved loved loved it ! I am a big fan of Sex In The City, and being able to preview the first pilot of the Carrie Diaries was an honor. I loved the fact that they were giving out candies from the eighties as well as soft drimks. I brought my 17 year old daughter who had a great time as well. The seating we had were awesome and the venue was nice. The show was about an hour long and the Q&A was cool. The actress playing the young Carrie Bradshaw was there as well as the excutive producer and the author of the books. It was interesting to get their insight on how this show came about and how they want the show to portray the fantabulous young Carrie Bradshaw. My guess that this show will run 6 years just like Sex in the City. My daughter said she would definitely watch the show and me too. Can't wait for it to air !
The pre-screening reception will feature passed hors d'oeuvres. Alcohol will not be available at the event.
The Carrie Diaries drops us in 1984, where life isn’t easy for 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw. Since their mother passed away, Carrie’s younger sister Dorritt is more rebellious than ever, and their father Tom is overwhelmed with the responsibility of suddenly having to care for two teenage girls on his own. Carrie’s friends – sweet, geeky Mouse, sarcastic and self-assured Maggie and sensitive Walt – make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn’t doing much to take her mind off her troubles. And even though the arrival of a sexy new transfer student named Sebastian brings some excitement to Carrie’s world, she is struggling to move on from her grief. So when Tom offers Carrie the chance to intern at a law firm in Manhattan, she leaps at the chance. Carrie’s eyes are opened wide at the glamour and grit of New York City – and when she meets Larissa, the style editor for Interview magazine, she’s inspired by the club culture and unique individuals that make up Larissa’s world. Carrie’s friends and family may have a big place in her heart, but she’s fallen in love for the first time with the most important man in her life – Manhattan.
