What's on at Regal Picturehouse - Dementia-Friendly Screening
Nearly three decades after her first visit to London, the enigmatic Mary Poppins (Blunt) soars back into the capital to look after the Banks children in their time of need.
The now grown-up Jane (Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Whishaw) are living in the same house on Cherry Tree Lane, along with Michael’s three children and their housekeeper Ellen (Walters).
The family are in danger of losing their home, and Michael is struggling after a personal loss, but the practically perfect nanny returns just in time to rekindle the fun and wonder missing from their lives – with a little help from street lamplighter Jack (Miranda) and her eccentric cousin Topsy (Streep).
Boasting wonderful songs, classic 2D animation and cameos from some familiar faces, this is a delightful reunion for all to enjoy, whether you grew up with the magic or are discovering it for the first time.

Fassbinder was fascinated by strong, smart women using their wiles to navigate a man’s world; Hawks’ gorgeous musical about two showgirls sailing for Paris while checking out suitably moneyed males fits the bill perfectly. Monroe and Russell are terrific, the musical numbers are simultaneously sumptuous and ironic, and the colour and costumes are ravishing.
