We’re delighted to be partnering with Bristol Museum & Art Gallery this autumn for an evening of spectacular screenings themed around the circus, to coincide with ‘Clowns: The Eggs-hibition’ and Circus 250. Enter the museum after hours, be enchanted by live performers, and prepare to be drawn into the magic like never before in the incredible setting of the main hall.
The second film we’re showing is the recent Oscar-winning smash hit The Greatest Showman, and we will be screening it with onscreen lyrics so that you can join in with your favourite songs!
Loosely inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman tells the story of a man who builds a successful circus from scratch, in spite of hardships and prejudice. Can he realise his dreams of providing entertainment for everyone, or will his ambitious machinations result in the loss of those dearest to him?
Starring: Hugh Jackman | Zac Efron | Michelle Williams | Zendaya | Rebecca Ferguson
Director: Michael Gracey
Screenplay: Jenny Bicks | Bill Condon
Producer: Laurence Mark | Peter Chernin | Jenno Topping
THEY SAY: “You will be overwhelmed by the music and magic that explode on the screen. The film has a message that should resonate with today’s world concerning acceptance and courage.” – Jackie K. Cooper, Huffington Post, 2017
WE SAY: With an Oscar win for Best Original Song for ‘This Is Me’, and a UK chart-topping soundtrack album run equalled only by Adele, it’s obvious that the music from this film is a major part of its success – this is your opportunity to join in with them whilst watching the movie on the big screen!
This event is hosted in partnership with Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.
