A Glorious Love Story with Music
"Meet Me in St. Louis" is a classic MGM romantic musical comedy from 1944 that focuses on four sisters (one of whom is Judy Garland) on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The film spotlights the sisters' education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn't limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the typical boy next door. In the end, love - along with song, dance and period costumes, all in glorious Technicolor - conquers all. Songs include classics: 'The Trolly Song' & 'Have yourself a Merry Xmas''.
'Three quarters of a century later, the film still beckons the miracles of love and family; it's a fine-tuned, pastel romp, worthy of its place among the best of the big brass Hollywood musicals.' - Film Inquiry
'Judy Garland has never been more spirited or more poignant.' - Observer
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.
