Sunday Movie - The Greatest Showman

When is it?
Sun 27 May

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted? The South Waikato Arts Trust is delighted to announce a new bus service to transport patrons from Tokoroa to The Plaza, Putaruru to view our monthly Sunday movies. The bus will collect patrons along the Urban Connector route from 12noon on Sunday the 22nd of April and will do so for our monthly movies throughout autumn and winter 2018. Due to a generous grant from the Len Reynolds Trust this is a free service for residents to attend our movies at The Plaza. There will be tea and coffee available to purchase at The Plaza before the movie which starts at 2pm. The movie admission cost is $8 for adults or $5 for students. The bus will drop off patrons following the Urban Connector route at the completion of the movie.
