Olivier's Hamlet: open-air screening in Elsinore

Elsinore's Kronborg Castle

15th August 2016

CPH PIX and HamletScenen to host open-air screening, British Council's #ShakespeareLives helps promote this special event.

It's hard to imagine a more perfect setting to enjoy a screening of Laurence Olivier's 1948 Hamlet, than an open-air screening at Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, Denmark.

The 15 Aug event is organised by HamletScenen in cooperation with CPH PIX and Danish Cinematheque. British Council's #ShakespeareLives initiative is proud to be a friend of the event.

The quadruple-Oscar-winning film will be shown in the castle's courtyard. Elsinore (aka Helsingor) was of course Shakespere's setting for Hamlet. The town is reachable about 45 minutes from Copenhagen.
