The film will be screened for eight performances from the 30th May until the 4th June.
Following seven years of shows at the Union Chapel in Islington, it has been announced that Backyard Cinema’s acclaimed Romeo+Juliet returns, with a brand-new location, playing at the Alexandra Palace Theatre this summer, with eight shows between Tuesday 30th May – Sunday 4th June.
Backyard Cinema will celebate Baz Luhrmann’s iconic 1996 Romeo+Juliet, with a special performance of the greatest love story ever told, reimagined for the stage. The performance will include a choir performing the soundtrack to the film performing versions of the famous movie soundtrack before, during and after the screening, including Young Hearts, Everybody’s Free and Kissing You. In addition, these performances will also include four additional classic soundtrack songs performed by the choir, including; You and Me Song, Local God, and Doves Cry.
Talking about the news, Dominic Davis, founder and CEO of Backyard Cinema, said, “It has been amazing to bring this show to so many people over the years, I still get goosebumps every time I watch it. As soon as I saw the rustic setting of the Alexandra Palace Theatre, I knew it would be the perfect location, it already looks like the theatre from the film, even before we enhanced it with Neon Crosses, candle lit aisles and giant stained glass windows featuring Leo himself!”
