Screening FAQs

Are you new to the world of theatre screenings at Eastwood Park Theatre? Here's a handy guide to our theatre screenings.

Why are East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure hosting theatre screenings?

We feel that our audiences deserve to see the very best in drama, comedy, music and film right here in East Renfrewshire. Alongside our regular programme of live shows, theatre screenings allow us to stream the best shows from across the UK to our cinema sized screen in a small, intimate local theatre environment. Whether it is a reimagined classic, or a piece of new and innovative work, we believe these screenings offer our customers the chance to see incredible theatre-without the London price tag!

What is NT Live?

NT Live is one of our biggest providers of theatre screenings. NT Live began ten years ago as an initiative from the National Theatre to bring the best in British theatre to cinema screens all over the UK and beyond, from Tokyo to San Francisco.

Each of their broadcasts is filmed in front of a live theatre audience. The position of cameras in the theatre is tailored to each play, to ensure that audiences watching in the cinema or theatre always get the best seat in the house.

Via satellite they broadcast the live performance from the theatre they are in to cinema screens across the UK, as well as many European and American cinemas.

What is an encore screening?

An encore is essentially a replay- the live footage from the broadcast is shared, unedited, with cinemas and theatres for repeat encore screenings in theatres and cinemas not able to screen it live, or with those just wishing to relive the glory. There is little or no difference between what you see in the live broadcast and a repeat encore screening.

Is it just NT Live that does screenings at Eastwood Park Theatre?

No! Far from it. We have many partners who screen the highest quality theatre to our cinema screen. Recent shows from other providers have been smash-hit musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake,and the upcoming Oscar Wilde and Royal Opera House seasons.

Where do I get information about the shows?
