For the first time ever, the French play “Cyrano de Bergerac” from the Comédie-Française, comes to movie theaters across the U.S. for a special one-night event.
The Comédie-Française is the most prestigious Parisian stage and American audiences will get to experience the most emblematic piece of the French repertoire and enjoy this romantic comedy in a larger-than-life-setting on the big screen.

In “Cyrano de Bergerac,” Cyrano is cursed with a prominent nose but gifted with words. He uses this talent to help the handsome Christian win Roxane’s heart, whom he also loves. However, Cyrano may be too ugly to be loved. Watch the trailer here

During the event, intermissions will feature exclusive interviews with Denis Podalydès, actors Michel Vuillermoz and Françoise Gillard (Cyrano and Roxane), scenographer and general director of the Comédie-Française Éric Ruf and prop master Balthazar.

Staged by famous actor and director Denis Podalydès with costumes designed by world-renowned Christian Lacroix, “Cyrano de Bergerac” has been the biggest hit of the Comédie-Française and the most attended play in Paris for the entirety of its 10-year run. This award-wining production (6 Molière theatre prizes) is no longer staged in Paris, making this cinema event the only opportunity for theatre-lovers to see it.

Fathom Events and Pathé Live present “Cyrano de Bergerac” in more than 300 select movie theaters on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. local time, through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).
