Handmade Cinema presents Mary Poppins
- , 2016
Tickets cost £5
Handmade Cinema returns, with an immersive screening of Mary Poppins.
In collaboration with Sensoria, the community cinema group will transform the Burton Street Foundation into Edwardian London, where cinema-goers can enjoy chalk drawing, word inventing, face painting, a one-man-band and some classic songs from the film.
Ahead of the screenings, Handmade Cinema will be hosting a Poppins-themed workshop for local residents on Saturday 1 October at Walkley Library, making kites to be used as scenery at the screenings.
Handmade Cinema's Ellie Ragdale says: "Mary Poppins is one of my favourite films. It is so iconic with lots of songs and settings, which we can't wait to bring to life with local families. Although it was made in the 1960s, the film has stood the test of time and is beautiful and nostalgic, and we love the idea of bringing it to a younger generation to enjoy with their parents." And as Burton Street's managing director Clare Mappin points out, "Mary Poppins is a real classic and a perfect choice as the Bamforth Building (which houses Burton Street Foundation) was once an umbrella factory".
Friday 7 October 4pm / Saturday 8 October 3pm
The first screening, on Friday 7 October, is a learning difficulty friendly event and is produced in collaboration with the Burton Street Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that offers support to adults and older children with learning and physical difficulties.
Burton Street Foundation, 57 Burton Street, S6 2HH.
