Book cinema tickets for Cleopatra

This colossal and opulent spectacular was epic in every sense - an epic investment, and epic in the annals of Hollywood gossip. Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor) meets up with Caesar (Rex Harrison), and plans to lure him to her boudoir in order to forge an alliance. When he's killed, Cleopatra is left without an ally, so when Roman general Mark Antony (Richard Burton) comes along, she seduces him in the hope that he will become her new protector. Featuring lavish set and costume design and Taylor and Burton perfectly cast, this is a must see on the big screen!

The film will be introduced by Dr Margaret Maitland, Senior Curator of the Ancient Mediterranean collections at National Museums Scotland.
