Upcoming Events...

The Glenn Miller Story (1954) - Dementia Friendly Screening

The Palace Theatre || Sunday 2 February || 2.00pm

Certificate ‘U’ / 115mins

James Stewart stars in this biopic of American bandleader Glenn Miller. A talented young trombonist, Miller (Stewart) falls for Helen Burger (June Allyson) while studying at the University of Colorado. He gets his first big break after leaving college performing his own arrangement of 'Everybody Loves My Baby' at an audition, and builds himself a reputation working for bandleader Ben Pollack (playing himself). Marriage to Helen follows, and Miller finds success with his own 'sound' after a trumpet player splits his lip, forcing him to substitute a clarinet solo on 'Moonlight Serenade'. He goes on to become the leading jazz bandleader of his day, but tragedy looms with the outbreak of World War Two. Many of Miller's erstwhile colleagues, including Louis Armstrong, Gene Krupa and Frances Langford, appear here as themselves.

Screening starts at 2.00pm.

Judy (2019)

Certificate ‘12A’ / 115 mins

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in THE WIZARD OF OZ, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Will she have the strength to go on? Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.

Screening starts at 7:30pm, the bar opens at 6pm

Tickets £6, plus £1.50 booking fee, available in advance from www.palacetheatresouthend.co.uk / 01702 351135 or on the door.
