The script will be well known to many, but just in case – Mary Poppins flies out of the windy London skies and into the home of two mischievous children.

With the help of a carefree chimney sweep named Bert (Dick Van Dyke), the spirited nanny turns every chore into a game and every day into a “Jolly Holiday.”

Chris Colebrooke, head of marketing at Whitby Pavilion, said: “Disney Plus is fantastic, but nothing beats the thrill of seeing films like this on the big screen, as Walt Disney himself had intended.

“We want to encourage all, old and new, who know the songs from their childhood and even those who are watching it for the first time, it’s such a feel-good film that everyone can enjoy.”
