Shakespeare Live, the celebration of the bard's work, hosted by David Tennant and Catherine Tate, is to be screened in US movie theatres later this month.

The show marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. It was commissioned by the BBC in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and was originally screened live on BBC Two last month.

Fathom and BBC Worldwide have joined forces to present the broadcast in select U.S. cinemas nationwide for one night on Monday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
