Special Screens: National Velvet
Elizabeth Taylor stars as Velvet Brown, a young girl who wins a thoroughbred horse in a national lottery and is determined to enter it in the Grand National.
These screenings are suitable for those living with special needs, such as Dementia, physical and mental challenges, their families and carers. Films will screen with low-level lighting, no adverts or trailers and the audience are free to move around, or sing along to any musical number if they so wish. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be served half an hour before the film to give people the chance to meet and socialise, and to familiarise themselves with the venue.
Won 2 Oscars.
“Both Taylor and Rooney give without doubt the best performances of their pre-adult years…” ~ David Wood, BBCi-Films
