Tuesday, January 29, 9:00 p.m.
This acclaimed film of Shakespeare’s play is “a production that smites the eye with violence and rings with the clang of metal words,” according to its original New York Times review. Starring Marlon Brando as Mark Antony, James Mason as Brutus, and John Gielgud as Cassio, the film is brilliantly directed by the legendary Oscar-winning Joseph Mankiewicz.

Friday, February 1, 8:00 p.m.
In a press release, Kenneth Branagh stated: "By relocating the Forest of Arden to Japan, it would be possible to get audiences to experience the story in a new, different and exotic way. . . . I felt the sublime landscape and fascinating culture could be an inspiring setting for this quintessential romantic comedy.” With stunning performances by Kevin Kline as Jacques and Bryce Dallas Howard as Rosalind, the film captures something essential in Shakespeare’s classic love story.
