Nostalgic Cinema: The Band Wagon

Directed by Vincente Minnelli

Starring Cyd Charisse, Fred Astaire, Oscar Levant, Nanette Fabray, Jack Buchanan

Duration 108 mins.


Nostalgic Cinema Events are kindly sponsored by Home Instead


Famous musical movie star Tony Hunter (Fred Astaire) fears his career may be on the skids, but his friends, Lester (Oscar Levant) and Lily (Nanette Fabray), have written a Broadway vehicle to kick-start his professional life. Tony is ecstatic - until egotistical director Jeffrey Cordova (Jack Buchanan) joins the project and casts ballerina Gaby Gerard (Cyd Charisse) as the leading lady. Tony's second chance seems to be fading, but he may get more than he bargained for as the show goes on.



Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £4.50 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee

Seats are not allocated for these showings.
