At the annual Event Cinema Association Slate Day on 17 January 2019, we were thrilled to receive a Box Office HIGHLY COMMENDED EVENT OF 2018 Award for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – our second industry award for this hugely successful musical theatre cinema release. ECA Managing Director Grainne Peate said the Board had selected this event in recognition of the younger, more diverse audience it brought into cinemas and because it was so enthusiastically received by the many people who watched the live broadcast at more than 500 venues across the UK on 5 July 2018.
During the Slate Day More2Screen announced two wonderful new events for 2019: Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, an iconic dance production available from 1 April, and The Merry Wives of Windsor which will be broadcast live to cinemas from Shakespeare’s Globe on 20 June.
In addition we presented a review of the our release highlights from 2018 which included the Oscar Wilde Season of four plays broadcast live from the Vaudeville Theatre, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella + a live Q&A, English National Ballet Akram Khan’s Giselle and The Winter’s Tale live from Shakepeare’s Globe which are all available as recorded content on DCP and Blu-ray.
