Two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar winner Tom Hanks top line Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks,".
Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th April, 2.15pm Two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar winner Tom Hanks top line Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks," inspired by the extraordinary, untold back story of how Disney's classic "Mary Poppins" made it to the screen. When Walt Disney's daughters begged him to make a movie of their favourite book, P.L. Travers' "Mary Poppins," he made them a promise-one that he didn't realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers.
