TO celebrate the release of the film Saving Mr Banks (PG) starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, the Regal Picturehouse
TO celebrate the release of the film Saving Mr Banks (PG) starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, the Regal Picturehouse in Henley has joined forces with the Henley Standard and Walt Disney Pictures to offer a fantastic prize in a Saving Mr Banks competition.
The prize includes a 50th anniversary copy of the original Mary Poppins film starring Julie Andrews on Blu-Ray, plus a pair of tickets to see the film at the Regal cinema.
Saving Mr Banks tells the heart-warming story of how Mary Poppins made it to the big screen, — and it certainly wasn’t straightforward! When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favourite book, he made them a promise — one that he didn’t realise would take him 20 years to keep.
In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.
To be in with a chance of winning, just answer this question:
Which Captain Phillips actor stars as Walt Disney in Saving Mr Banks?
Send your answer on a postcard, together with your name, address and daytime contact number to Henley StandardSaving Mr Banks competition, Caxton House, Station Road, Henley RG91AD.
The winner will be the sender of the first correct entry to be selected at random after the closing date of Friday, November 29. Please be aware that the winner will receive their blu-ray copy of Mary Poppins after its release date of December 10.
The prize is non-refundable and there is no cash alternative. Normal Standard competition rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. To see the rules, visit www.henleystandard.co.uk/regulars/competition_rules.php
