MARY POPPINS: Free Outdoor Family Night Screening at 4th Street Market

March 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

Arguably the pinnacle of Disney’s impressive canon of live-action family films, director Robert Stevenson’s 1964 classic Mary Poppins comes to 4th Street Market as we once again collaborate with 4SM and 100eats for a FREE Family Move Night!  Swing by the Market’s diverse family of restaurants for their Kids Menu specials, pick up some crayons and brush up on your coloring book skills, and kick back for some FREE outdoor cinema as soon as the sun goes down!

Nominated for 12 Academy Awards, the sensational Mary Poppins took home 5 Oscars, including the Best Actress award for Julie Andrews in her iconic film debut.  Andrews stars as Mary Poppins, a particularly odd nanny that literally floats down from a cloud to serve the Banks family – conservative, commerce-obsessed dad George (David Tomlinson); passionate suffragette mom Winnifred (Glynis Johns); and rambunctious children Jane (Karen Dotrice) and Michael (Matthew Garber).  Picking up musician/street artist/chimney sweep Bert (Dick Van Dyke) along the way, Mary takes the children on a truly magical adventure through London, parsing out life lessons in her own alternately sweet and sassy way while strategically working to repair the bond between the children and their father, and help him reconnect to his own child within.

A breathtaking cinematic masterpiece brimming with beloved songs, a mesmerizing score, and eye-popping special effects – all of which won Oscars – Mary Poppins is a timeless film that is as whimsical as it is surprisingly poignant, providing non-stop visual delights for children while the adults are given something pretty profound to connect to!

4th Street Market’s diverse restaurants, bars, and dessert shops will be open ’til 9pm—see what this Downtown Santa Ana food collective has to offer at! Grab a bite and enjoy a night of cinema with the community! 

Sunday, March 24 – 6:30pm 

“Compared to even ‘sophisticated’ juvenile fodder, the sheer exuberance of Disney’s adaptation of PL Travers’ children’s classic should tickle the most jaded fancy.” – Frances Dickinson, Time Out 

“Rating: 10/10.  One of the best films ever produced by Disney – indeed one of the best American films of the 1960s.  A fantasy of the most delicate touch and charming disposition.” – Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy 

“I find it irresistible. Plenty of other adults will feel the same way. And, needless to say, so will the kids.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times
