I think this is a neat idea, and it's a phenomenal show (in my opinion). Do you think it will be released on DVD afterwards?

I'm super excited for this! I went to the website to buy tickets but it seems like it's only for UK right now - is there a link to the US ticket sales? I google searched and couldn't find anything either.

I'm only finding locations in the UK as well.

Maybe they'll announce locations here soon - they only just announced it and probably had it all logistically figured out for the UK first.

ugh, as if more people needed to be exposed to this heap of trash.

Love the show. I do hope they eventually release it on DVD because I'm usually working every time they do these one night only cinema showings.
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

I imagine the show will get a DVD release as Universal is involved but I imagine it'll by country by country basis since the show is running in several places and they probably don't want to hurt ticket sales.

No, there is no DVD of War Horse. It's very rare that shows get a DVD release, and the NT Live series never does.

I would love to see this again. I hope it broadcasts in Chicago. I also missed the War Horse and Frankenstein screenings.

"ugh, as if more people needed to be exposed to this heap of trash."
By coincidence that was my exact reaction to mjohnson2's post.

Haha, CATS, I tried to be careful with my wording there, but wasn't quite careful enough...I should have said there is no "official" DVD of War Horse...

kp, that doesn't make sense. Are you saying that people don't need to be exposed to my posts? I'm pretty sure that this is an opinion forum and all are welcome to post their's (as are you). If you like the show, good for you. I personally think that it is an insult to modern theatre, but you can think otherwise.

It makes as much sense as your provocative statement.I don't mind you not liking the show but sometimes it is wiser to say nothing or express it in such a way that is sensitive to other peoples opinions. You obviously haven't found a way to express an opinion without saying things like "insult to modern theatre", which is insulting the many people who like it.

There's been a slight update to the website regarding these screenings: dates for Ireland, Sweden (both 28 September like the UK) and Australia (5 October).
