Saving Mr Banks

Sunday 14th December at 3pm showing at 3.30pm

An enormous spoonful of sugar and the tiniest bit of medicine: it all goes down, just about. This is a warmly, in fact outrageously sentimental and self-congratulatory film from Disney about the master himself: the story of how in 1961 the wily genius Walt Disney – likably played by Tom Hanks – persuaded the grumpy British dame PL Travers to come to Los Angeles and begin talks to sign away the screen rights to her legendary creation, Mary Poppins. It was a project Walt had been working on for 20 years. The director is John Lee Hancock, who made the intensely patriotic football picture The Blind Side. Gimlet of eye, pursed of lip, uptight of demeanour, Travers is terribly suspicious of Hollywood razzmatazz; she is played by Emma Thompson, a double Oscar-winner for writing and acting who is nonetheless best known to younger audiences now from the smash-hit Nanny McPhee films. Will starchy old Travers finally get thawed by Walt's rich warmth? Will she abandon her haughty resistance to his folksiness and schmaltz? And can this intensely American figure faithfully represent the quintessential Britishness of the Mary Poppins story?

Farnham Malting presents

'It's a Wonderful Life'

Friday 2nd January 2015

Welcome to Bedford Falls. Welcome to small town America. Welcome to Farnham Maltings production. Frank Capra’s classic 1946 movie needs no introduction. George Bailey, a desperate middle aged clerk discovers the difference he has made to his family, his friends and his home town. (with a little help from Clarence, the apprentice angel) 

Following the success of Miracle on 34th Street (November 2009) Farnham Maltings will bring the struggles and joys of a 1940s small town America to Lingfield. Using their own, inimitable style the company has created two hours of theatre that promise to warm the coldest of places through the long winter nights.
