HammersmithLondon's Big Screen
Experience this summer’s most popular art and sporting events on HammersmithLondon’s Big Screen.
HammersmithLondon’s Big Screen returns once again for this year’s Summer Festival from 25 June to the end of July. Be sure to catch the London Anniversary Games on Sun 9 July between 1pm and 5pm, and cheer on athletics superstar Usain Bolt in his last race before retirement! And bring your strawberries and cream to soak up the atmosphere on our deckchairs for Live Wimbledon everyday on the Big Screen from Mon 3 to Sun 16 July.
As well as our exciting summer sports programme, HammersmithLondon will be bringing back Opera – Live from the Royal Opera House. On 4th July Ekaterina Bakanova and Corinne Winters lead two excellent casts in Richard Eyre’s much-loved production of Verdi’s most famous opera La Traviata and on 14th July watch live as Christine Goerke and Lise Lindstrom take the title role in Andrei Serban’s striking and awe inspiring staging of Puccini’s final opera Turandot.
In partnership with Lyric Hammersmith & Digital Theatre, watch fabulous productions of Noel Coward’s Private Lives and Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House on the Big Screen 19 & 26 July from 7pm.
Private Lives, a comedy of manners, sees a romance revisited between glamorous divorcées Elyot and Amanda after they unexpectedly meet each other while both on honeymoon with their respective spouses.
This production was captured by Digital Theatre live at the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End. It was directed by Jonathan Kent and starred Toby Stephens as Elyot and Anna Chancellor as Amanda.
Captured live at the Young Vic Theatre, London in July 2012, come and watch this production free on the Big Screen on Lyric Square.
Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens (Punk Rock), Young Vic associate director Carrie Cracknell (Elektra) and Tony Award-winning designer Ian MacNeil (Billy Elliot) create a compelling new version of Ibsen’s masterpiece.
A Doll’s House features Hattie Morahan (star of the BBC’s Sense and Sensibility and Outnumbered) and Dominic Rowan (seen on Law & Order: UK and the Royal Court Theatre’s The Village Bike).
