'King Henry IV, Part 2' is Shakespeare from the Globe Theatre on a movie screen

Falstaff dominates King Henry IV, Part 2, with Roger Allam, left, playing Shakespeare's most famous rogue in the latest production filmed at the historic Globe Theatre in London and now showing in movie theaters. The Globe is modeled after the open-roof theater, made of wood and thatch, built in 1599 for Shakespeare's company. "What we do here is very unique because it is done in the architecture and the place Shakespeare wrote for," Globe artistic director Dominic Dromgoole says. The second Henry IV, performed during the 2010 theater season and also starring Jamie Parker as Prince Hal, screens at 6:30 tonight in Pinellas Park (Park Place Stadium 16), Oldsmar (Woodland Square 20), Tampa (Citrus Stadium Park Mall 20) and Sarasota (Sarasota 12, Hollywood Stadium 20). The next showing in the series is another history play, Henry VIII, on Sept. 15. $12.50-$15. fathomevents.com.
