Stephen Frears' and Meryl Streep's FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS screenings with behind-the-scenes footage and pre-recorded cast Q&A Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.
Set in 1940s New York, Stephen Frears' Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer.

'Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil' Opens August 5 at the Royal, August 6 at the Playhouse and Claremont
The documentary Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil follows a team of art historians who try to reveal the mystery of the 25 extant paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Over the course of five years the research team travelled the world, visiting museums such as The Louvre, The Prado and the National Gallery of Art in Washington to make an in-depth analysis of Bosch’s paintings. By using modern techniques, such as X-ray, infrared photography, and multi-spectrum analysis, they allow us to penetrate into the deeper layers of his paintings thus helping the audience to look at the works of Bosch with new eyes.

To wit, check out this short video clip featuring audience footage from the film's premiere at the Royal last week. To celebrate this sleeper hit, we've procured a copy of Ram Dass' seminal book BE HERE NOW signed by the great mystic himself! EN [...]
