Grab the popcorn, Brindleyplace Film Festival is back for 2019 – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Returning from July 15 – 21, this year’s musical theme will see Central Sq come to life with the sound of music, as some of the biggest musical blockbuster of all time are set to return to the big screen.

Each movie has been voted for by the public, so you can be sure that one of your favourite musical numbers is sure to be on the unmissable lineup. The festival will kick off with a showing of Mamma Mia on Monday, July 15, followed by the Sound of Music on July 16 and Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge on Wednesday, July 17.

Other movies hitting the big screen throughout the week are 2017’s A Star is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, while The Greatest Showman will be showing at 1pm on Saturday, July 20 at 1pm and closing with Mary Poppins Returns on Sunday, July 21 at 4pm.

This year’s the festival has also teamed up with charity Sense, who will be fundraising throughout the week, as well as hosting a great range of activities that everyone can enjoy. Sense supports adults and children who are deafblind or have complex disabilities, its centre in Birmingham brings services together with arts, sport and wellbeing activities, as well as helping deafblind people to access employment, volunteering and training opportunities.

One of the best things about BrindleyPlace Film Festival is that it’s totally free to attend, just make sure you head down early if you want to grab a deckchair, or feel free to bring along your own with plenty of snacks for a fantastic movie night in the heart of the city.
