HPO Movie Night: Romeo + Juliet Posted on August 10, 2014 Wednesday, February 11 at 7:30pm The Zoetic Theatre (526 Concession St.) The classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy is updated by director Baz Luhrmann to a post-modern Verona Beach where swords are merely a brand of gun and bored youths are easily spurred toward violence. In this dazzling adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic love story, OSCAR® Nominee Leonardo DiCaprio stars opposite Claire Danes. They light up the screen as the original star-crossed lovers against a thumping soundtrack and a boldly imagined modern-day setting. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes and John Leguizamo. The Zoetic Theatre is located at 526 Concession St., Hamilton. Pre-Film Feature: Enjoy a musical peek into how Shakespeare’s famous love story has been transformed into music with a mini-performance and demonstration of Russian composer Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite on the piano. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the HPO’s concert Romeo and Juliet on February 21 at 7:30pm at FirstOntario Concert Hall (formerly Hamilton Place).
