Cultural phenomenon The Greatest Showman will be the feature film when East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) hosts an open air cinema experience at Cambridge’s Cherry Hinton Hall.
The event on Saturday, 8 September promises to be full of fun, with a live band to entertain until the film begins. In addition there will be hot food and drinks, or guests are welcome to take a picnic.
Polly West, EACH Cambridgeshire Community Fundraiser, said: “We’re really excited to be screening such a popular hit film as The Greatest Showman and delighted to already have sold 429 tickets. It’s sure to be a fantastic night of music, laughter and entertainment, so please do join us!
“All money raised will help us continue providing care for children with life-threatening conditions across the region and support for their families.”
The Greatest Showman, featuring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams among others, was released in December last year and its music is a major part of current pop culture, with the soundtrack album becoming only the second album in 30 years – after Adele’s 21 – to achieve 11 consecutive weeks at number one.
Gates will open at 6.30pm. The film, one hour and 45 minutes, will start at sundown around 8pm. There will be no reserved seating, so guests are advised to take blankets and collapsible chairs for full comfort.
Tickets are £12. Dogs are permitted, but must be kept on leads at all times. To book and for more information about both the event, supported by Star Radio, and the charity’s care services, visit www.each.org.uk/cinema.
