Monday 10 April 2017  - Oklahoma!
The classic big screen adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first musical. Oklahoma follows the story of two cowboys hoping to win the hearts of two women working in the Cornfields of early twentieth century Oklahoma. 
Helen Longworth will lead a singalong during an interval in the film and there will also be a guest appearance from the local Retrospective Dance Company with their take on a number by acclaimed choreographer Bob Fosse who was hugely inspired by Fred Astaire.

Monday 19 June 2017 - The Band Wagon
Tony Hunter, a famous singer and dancer, is feeling washed up and yesterday’s news, but his old friends Lily and Les Martin have an idea for a Broadway show that may be just the thing to boost his flagging spirits. Things, however, begin to get out of hand, when bigshot ‘artistic’ director Jeffrey Cordova joins the production.

Monday 24 July 2017 - Jailhouse Rock
In arguably the best of Presley’s films, he plays a hot-headed young truck driver who kills a man in a fight and is sent to prison, where he is taught to sing and play guitar. On his release he sets out to break into show business and eventually succeeds, with the help of a pretty record promoter.

There will be further screenings to come.
