You may not be able to fly to London to catch Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance as the brooding Prince of Denmark, but fear not: The show will be screened in movie theaters around the globe.

The broadcaster National Theatre Live will begin selling tickets on March 16, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hamlet runs at London’s Barbican Theatre from Aug. 25 through Oct. 31, with the screening taking place in participating theaters on Oct. 15. Some movie theaters may even show encore performances.

Since the live show is already sold out, according to the Barbican’s website, this now seems like the best option even for Cumberbatch fans who live in London. So get thee to a cinema, go!
