    There was a adaptation of Macbeth. Came out in the late 70's and was pretty popular. Give me a sec and I will get you an IMDB link.

    Edit: Best I could do is wiki, should still help you though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth_(1971_film)

    Go to blockbuster and rent West Side Story, Romeo + Juliet, Rent, any Hamlet adaptation, The Phantom of the Opera, etc.

    There are tons of move adaptations to plays. I bet some of them are streaming on netflix too.

    If there is a list of movies netflix streams, I can go through it and pick out some choice ones.

    Netflix has a variety of films of Great Performances from PBS. I would suggest the recent remake of "Company" by Stephen Sondheim. It's a musical, so I don't know if that matches your criteria, but all of the singers are also band performers in it, which makes it a bit novel (much like another Sondheim revival of "Sweeney Todd").

    But yeah, you shouldn't have any problems finding movie adaptations of plays on Netflix.

    I feel like liming two posts at once is a party foul, but the past two posters have it nailed. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead if you want a film adaptation of a play, the PBS Great Performances of "Company" if you want a live stage recording of a play.
