Thursday 23rd January 2020

Presents: "JUDY"   

12A rated, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.  


Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) 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.

 

Seats are £4.  Book at Harleston Information Plus, Exchange Street, or call 01379 851917. 

Ice creams at the interval;  bar also available for the evening screening.
