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 March’s Neal-Wade Academy.
The event on Saturday, 28 July 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 have a fantastic night full of music, laughter and entertainment in store, 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 7pm. The film, one hour and 45 minutes, will start at sundown around 8.30pm. There will be no reserved seating, so guests are advised to take blankets and collapsible chairs for full comfort.
Tickets are £12. There will be free parking available. Dogs are not allowed. To book and for more information about both the event and the charity’s care services, visit www.each.org.uk/cinema.
