Every year we have one ‘Exception to the rule’ screening of a colour film. This year we have a LGBT History Month Screening in Partnership with Blackpool Pride Festival…
Polish up those cowboy boots because the Deadwood Stage is coming to Blackpool this February!
Join us for a sing-a-long screening one of the best loved musical films of the 1950s. The captivating Doris Day plays the whip-cracking, gun-toting frontier scout Calamity Jane, whose wild promises lead her to bring the beautiful Adelaide Adams to grace the stage at Deadwood’s Golden Garter saloon. The new arrival causes quite a stir, but has Calamity accidentally introduced a romantic rival?
The toe-tapping musical score by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster is a firm favourite, including catchy numbers like The Deadwood Stage, A Woman’s Touch and the Oscar winning Secret Love, which became a million-selling hit for Doris Day and a queer anthem.
We’re excited to bring you new digital sing-a-long release of this musical classic; so warm up your vocal chords as we’ll be encouraging you to belt out your favourites. Whip-crack-away!
Dressing up is is not essential, but positively encouraged… Yee-haaaa!
There will be a bucket collection for Blackpool Pride Festival at this event.
