Open-air Cinema: Much Ado About Nothing 

Director: Kenneth Branagh, 111 mins, 1993, UK-USA, 

Join us in Temple Bar's Meeting House Square for the perfect midsummer's evening at our Shakespeare open-air cinema event.  There will be a series of pre-screening pop-up Shakespearean performances, live music, and a succulent pig on a spit from The Hogfather to keep your Shakespearean appetites satisfied before the screening of Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing!

This witty and fast-paced version of Shakespeare’s classic is arguably one of the best Shakespeare adaptations ever filmed!

The sun-kissed hills of Tuscany provide the perfect backdrop for Kenneth Branagh's mischievous adaptation of the Bards comedy wherein the defiantly single Beatrice (Emma Thompson) and Benedick (Branagh) find themselves unwittingly thrust together through the machinations of a younger newly wedded couple. Boasting some of the most uproarious verbal jousting in the English language, Much Ado About Nothing remains a wise and witty delight.  


Tickets: Film only €14, Food only €8, Film + Food €18 

This screening is part of the British Council and IFI's Shakespeare Lives on Film season in June 2016.  For more information please take a look at our Shakespeare Lives on Film page.
