Helen Mirren in Phèdre Comes to Cinema Near You

Last Month I saw a poster of Racine's classic Phèdre featuring Dame Helen Mirren at the entrance of Elmwood cinema in Berkeley and was excited for the new "movie" and only learned later that it was a simulcast of a live performance in London. When I went back to Elmwood theater, all tickets were sold out.

Resigned to waiting for the possible DVD, I happily learned that it will re-ply in Rialto Cinemas Cerrito (El Cerrito). A ticket price of $22 (plus $3.50 online fee), won't bring you to London, but it will bring Dame Helen to a theatre near you. I'm looking forward to this treat.
