Screenings of Titus Andronicus and Julius Caesar will be shown in April at ODEON Dorchester as part of the Globe on Screen season.

The Odeon cinema in Dorchester are celebrating Shakespeare's birthday in April.

As part of their "Globe On Screen" season, they'll be showing critically acclaimed performances of the bard's work filmed at the Globe Theatre in London.

Its almost 400 years since Shakespeare died and it's his birthday on the 23rd April.

ODEON Dorchester's cultural Globe on Screen performances will start with a screening of Titus Andronicus on Thursday April 9. It's a violent, dark and gruesome play, which proved to be the smash-hit of Shakespeare's early career. Julius Caesar is the next cultural Globe on Screen title to be shown at ODEON Dorchester on Thursday April 30. It's a tense drama and timeless classic, highlighting little has changed between men in power struggles.

Alan Escott, general manager at ODEON Dorchester, says: "Shakespeare is the most popular dramatist and poet the Western world has ever produced. Despite almost 400 years passing since his death, he's still considered one of the best writers of all time. At the ODEON we regularly screen a variety of cultural performances."
