After the disappointment of having to cancel last year, we are happy to announce that the Garden Movie is back. For those of you who are new to the gardens, one Saturday evening each summer we put up a big screen in the garden and play a classic movie. We supply transmitters, you bring your headphones to plug into them, and you hear the soundtrack without the sound disturbing other residents. In past years we’ve had wonderful evenings watching Some Like It Hot, Dial M For Murder, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, this year it’s the 1980 classic The Blues Brothers. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd are on a mission from god to put their band back together, and go on a musical pilgrimage across America, along the way encountering some of the greatest blues and soul artists of all time, including James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. Arguably the greatest movie soundtrack ever, and a whole lot of laughs as well.
It’s on Saturday 3rd September, and starts when darkness falls, which should be around 8.15pm. To cover costs we charge £10 per ticket, and you can buy them on this web page:
Feel free to bring your friends, we need about 90 people to break even. If it’s a nice evening, you can picnic in the gardens beforehand, and if the weather turns against us we can cancel on the Saturday morning and either reschedule or refund people’s tickets. If the past is any guide, get in early for your tickets as they sell pretty quickly !
