From the Tanner Humanities website:

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. Broadcasts have now been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world. Past broadcasts from the National Theatre have included The Audience starring Helen Mirren; Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller; Man and Superman with Ralph Fiennes; Yerma starring Billie Piper, Macbeth starring Kenneth Branagh, and Follies starring Imelda Staunton.

Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre and cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.

Venues view the broadcasts ‘as live’ according to their time zone or at a later date – which is where we come in. The Tanner Humanities Center started broadcasting National Theatre Live productions in 2010 at the University of Utah’s historic Post Theatre. Shortly thereafter, screenings moved to Tower Theatre before finally landing at Salt Lake Film Society‘s Broadway Centre Cinemas in downtown Salt Lake.”
