Bard in the Yard is a fall dose of outdoor movie nights featuring films based on the plays of William Shakespeare. New classics or pop cult movie hits in their own right, these selected films are cinematic salutes to Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Othello, and Taming of the Shrew.
This romantic musical update of 'Romeo and Juliet' is the tale of a turf war between rival teenage gangs in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen and two lovers who cross battle lines.
Rosencrantz (Gary Oldman) and Guildenstern (Tim Roth) ramble obliviously through Elsinore Castle and its environs as the events of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" unfold around them.
Moving the classic tale of "Othello" onto the basketball courts of a high school, the story focuses on a young black man named Odin (Mekhi Phifer) who is convinced by a conniving best friend, Hugo (Josh Hartnett) that his girlfriend (Julia Stiles) is cheating on him.
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton star in this film adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play, directed by Franco Zeffirelli.
