With an introduction and a small exhibition curated by the JB Priestley Society 

Adapted from J.B. Priestley’s famous novel charting the ups and downs of a struggling touring concert party, this endearing musical comedy features an outstanding array of British talent — including Halifax born Eric Portman.

The future looks bleak for The ‘Dinky Doos’ when their manager runs off with the funds and dwindling audiences force the theatre owner to close their show. Young Susie Dean is particularly disconsolate: the talented singer and dancer is sure the setback will mean an end to her theatrical career. However, a chance meeting of three strangers could bring about a big change in the fortunes of the little company…

The main feature will commence 15 minutes after the advertised screening time.
