Apr. 1-Apr. 13: Brief Encounter
Classic cinema jumps from the screen to the stage and back again in Kneehigh theater company’s production of Brief Encounter, on stage at Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Lansburgh Theatre through April 13. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the play is based on the iconic 1945 movie by the same name and incorporates both live theater and projected film footage. This show for the “incurably romantic” includes song, dance and just a touch of camp as the lives and trysts of three couples play out, largely in a train station.

Apr. 3: “M”
You can attend a screening of German filmmaker Fritz Lang’s iconic film “M” this Thursday night at 7 at the Goethe-Institut. Presented by the Goethe-Institut Washington, the Washington Film Institute and Molotov Theatre Group, the event will include a panel discussion about the intersection of German Expressionist and Grand Guignol styles.
