Le Balzac hosts Shakespeare Lives On Film

29th November - 6th December 2016

Franco Zeffirelli’s classic Romeo and Juliet will screen in Paris' arthouse cinema Le Balzac on 29 November as part of its homage to Shakespeare.

We are particularly pleased that Romeo and Juliet will be shown in France as part of Shakespeare Lives – the film was originally going to be screened for free outdoors at La Villette but sadly that event had to be cancelled due to security concerns after the Nice Bastille Day attack.

Le Balzac’s final screening from Shakespeare Lives on Film will be National Theatre’s Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch on 6 December.
