Fathom Events and Lincoln Center are thrilled to bring George Balanchine's The Nutcrackerâ?¢, performed by the New York City Ballet, to cinemas nationwide on Saturday, December 5 and Thursday, December 10. In George Balanchine's The Nutcrackerâ?¢, Tchaikovsky's beloved melodies transport the young and young at heart to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. In the New York City Balletâ??s famously extravagant staging, Balanchineâ??s stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet. Lincoln Center at the Movies brings exceptional artistic performances to local movie theaters, with its first series, Great American Dance, offering a larger-than-life experience with some of America's most inspiring dance companies.
