2018-2019 Season

Perspectives

 

Orpheus Cinema: Peter Pan

“Clap your hands if you believe!”

Peter Pan

Join us as we take flight to Neverland! Voices soar alongside flying children, fairies and mystical ships as Orpheus provides its own live choral soundtrack to the no longer silent 1924 classic film fantasy Peter Pan. Organ improvisations heighten the swash-buckling suspense, while creating a roaring twenties movie-house atmosphere. Get set for adventure as we kick off our 55th season with faith, trust and pixie dust.

At our special 3:30pm Family Matinee, children are encouraged to wear their Hallowe’en costumes, and come 30min before the performance to make a Peter Pan craft in the lobby. While food and drink are not permitted in the sanctuary, they can look forward to receiving a little Hallowe’en treat on their way out!

PLEASE NOTE: Children should have enough reading ability to make sense of the limited on-screen subtitles.

Adults, remember that we also have a 7:30pm screening if you’re looking for a night out on your own!
