It seems that Culture at the Cinema, held at Camana Bay Cinema each month, has no intention of screening anything lighthearted for the time being.

Culture at the Cinema: ‘Macbeth’

When it comes to Shakespeare’s tragedies, it doesn’t get much darker than “Macbeth.” The story of the Scottish general, who, spurred on by a prophecy of three witches and his wife’s ambitions, murders King Duncan, is a terrifying tale, yet one of the most performed of the Bard’s works.

Culture at the Cinema: ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’

It seems that Regal Camana Bay, in partnership with Culture at the Cinema, is continuing its religious theme into August.

Tickets will go fast for Helen Mirren in ‘Audience’

Culture at the Cinema: Man and Superman

It seems like the perfect coincidence to have the National Theatre’s production of George Bernard Shaw’s “Man and Superman” up next on Culture at the Cinema’s list as “Batman v Superman” is about ready to leave the screen. Just don’t expect Wonder Woman to be appearing on stage in the former anytime soon.
