Family Matinee! Ultra-Rare Screening - Sherman Brothers Classic!

MARY POPPINS, 1964, Disney, 140 min. Dir. Robert Stevenson. Julie Andrews is God’s gift to nanny-dom as Mary Poppins in this classic musical comedy/fantasy. When Poppins comes to work for the Banks family in their turn-of-the-20th-century London household, she uplifts everyone and brings magic to their lives. Dick Van Dyke is Bert, the good-natured chimney sweep and the great Jane Darwell, in her last screen appearance, plays the bird lady. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Andrews for Best Actress and Richard M. & Robert B. Sherman for Best Original Song and Best Original Music Score.

Family Matinee! - Richard Fleischer Tribute

20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, 1954, Walt Disney, 122 min. Richard Fleischer’s most beloved film captures both the childlike sense of adventure and the more sober nature of Jules Verne’s classic novel: James Mason is the ideal Captain Nemo opposite salty dog Kirk Douglas, scientist Paul Lukas and faithful valet Peter Lorre. Academy Award-winning art direction and special effects highlight this surprisingly adult Disney fantasy.
