The Greatest Showman – Open Air Cinema
Dir: Michael Gracey (2017, 1 hr 45 mins)
“The Greatest Showman” is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya, this is the first on the calendar for the yearly film events that turns Dudley Castle, into an open air cinema for your delight and enjoyment. There will be hot food and a licensed bar, but you’re welcome to bring your own picnics too! Don’t forget to bring along a chair and/or a blanket.
