Lights! Camera! Action!

And the winner is… Singin’ in the Rain!

Tickets are now on sale for our very first cinema evening in The Town!

On Friday, 26th June the Masonic Hall will be set for a fantastic film night as part of our Festival of 50s.

The evening is a ticketed event and Singin’ in the Rain is the movie you voted to be shown. Directed by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly and starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, Singin’ in the Rain is one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed – filled with memorable songs, lavish routines and Kelly’s fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain, a brilliant choice if we do say so ourselves.

Tickets are £6 each, you can buy them by ringing 0191 370 4000. Be quick though as there are only 80 seats available and it’s a night you don’t want to miss!

Why not really get into the spirit and come along in your 1950s finery? Or a raincoat and some wellies perhaps?

There will be snacks and drinks available but please note that only the Masonic Hall in The Town will be open to visitors.

Be sure to keep an eye on our social media pages and website for latest updates.

Beamish has plans to build a 1950s Town and Upland Farm, a Georgian Coaching Inn and other developments as part of the Remaking Beamish project. We’ve received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a £10.75million grant.

The 1950s Town is set to include houses, shops, police house, cafe, cinema and recreation area. Aged Miners’ Homes will be a centre for people living with dementia and their families and carers. A 1950s trolleybus system and restored buses will transport visitors.
