Guthrie Theater and Film Society announce new partnership

The Guthrie Theater and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul are partnering in a new series of film screenings with a theatrical bent.

As part of the partnership, the Film Society's St. Anthony Main Theatre will become the new home for the filmed-theater series NT Live originating from the National Theatre of London. "Theatre Thursdays" will begin on September 20 with "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," based on the novel by Mark Haddon.

The Film Society will also present films inspired by the Guthrie's upcoming 2012-2013 season. It's programming begins later this month with a retrospective of films by David Cronenberg. Cronenberg's film "A Dangerous Method" featured a screenplay by Christopher Hampton, who's work for the stage is being honored at the Guthrie Theater this fall.
