Synopsis

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

Doors open at 1:30pm for a 2pm start.

Tickets £4.50 each including light refreshments. Discounts available for pre-booked groups of 5+ and carers go free when requested at pre-booking.

 

Wiltshire Heights care home and BOA Town Council have joined forces to launch a community cinema in Bradford on Avon at St Margaret’s Hall. The idea came from conversations at the care home with regards to accessible cinema viewings.

Libby Miles of Wiltshire Heights said:

“Our residents talked to us about modern films that they would like to see in a cinema environment. Some of our residents have mobility issues or are living with dementia which could make being in a regular cinema environment very difficult for them.”

The idea behind the “Tuesday Matinee Club” is to make it accessible to all so there is cinema style tiered seating, as well as more informal seating around tables. There is also a short interval to provide a break in the film for refreshments and a comfort break.
