HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
On 10 July we’re showing “The Greatest Showman” at 7.30 in Harman’s Cross Village Hall. We don’t often show musicals at Movie Night so for those of you that loved La La Land, our next film is Hollywood's latest big top extravaganza, a musical biopic of nineteenth century entrepreneur and circus master, PT Barnum. So roll up, roll up to see Hugh Jackman, who plays Barnum, belting out songs rather than beating up villains as Wolverine. Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, Barnum was a man with a gift to blur the line between reality and fiction.
Coming from a poor background he was hungry for success and managed to open a wax museum but soon shifted focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. His wide collection of oddities attracted a great deal of criticism and was labelled a freak show. Despite the protests and poor reviews he attracted large audiences prompting him to rename his venture Barnum's Circus. Searching for ways to further his reputation and appeal to a high-brow audience, he gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind, thus losing sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will he risk it all to be accepted?
Tickets £5 on the door, which will open, along with the bar, at 7pm.
