Community Film Night: Screening - JudyWednesday 1st April - 19:30 - 22:00Steyning Parish CouncilThe Steyning Centre, Fletchers Croft, Steyning, West Sussex, BN44 3XZScreening: Judy
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown.
As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.
Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.
Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.” Renee Zellweger stars as JUDY and she has already won many awards including the important Best Actress in the Golden Globes. At the time of writing, she has also been nominated for a British Academy Award as well as for an Oscar.
Tickets are on sale at the Steyning Centre at £6.00 each and include tea or coffee during the interval. Wine is available at £2.50 a glass.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
