This repeated special film presentation to celebrate Christmas is based on the novel by Charles Dickens and voiced by a cast of leading actors, including Simon Russell Beal, Martin Freeman and Carey Mulligan.
A Victorian family prepares a paper theatre for a performance of A Christmas Carol. The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and soon the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.
The classic tale unfolds in a rich and absorbing tapestry of drama featuring sumptuous visual effects which are inspired by the techniques of early cinema. In a twist of format, characters are portrayed by dancers and voiced by actors.
The mix of danced action and spoken narration brings fresh dimension to Dickens’ characters and poetic language, while remaining true to the beauty of the original narrative.
The film also features the voices of Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Siân Phillips and Leslie Caron.
Tickets may only be booked by telephoning the Regal box office on 01643 706430 between 9.30am and 12.00pm (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday). Tickets are NOT available on line.
