Calamity Jane

Join us for this Sunday Afternoon classic musical when your toes will be tapping and youmay even find it diffcult to resist joining in with the songs

For those who have not seen this fabulous film before here is the story line.

Deadwood, Dakota Territory, is largely the abode of men, where Indian scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful, and handy with a gun as any; quite an overpowering personality. But the army lieutenant she favours doesn’t really appreciate her finer qualities. One of Jane’s boasts brings her to Chicago to recruit an actress for the Golden Garter stage. Arrived, the lady in question appears (at first) to be a more feminine rival for the favors of Jane’s male friends…including her friendly enemy Wild Bill Hickock.

The film is a U rating.

We will also be celebrating the launch of our new screening room all made possible by our award from £eith Chooses so there will be two screenings taking place, one in our upstairs hall and one in the downstairs fully accessible room.
