Platinum clubhouse social was at the cinema and the film was Mary Poppins returns . It was a very enjoyable musical set in early London . When the gas lamps were lit by hand Mary Poppins played by Emily Blunt was superb . She led us through the magic of being a nanny to three small children and the cameo role by Meryl Streep was very entertaining . It was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed . The blend of cartoon work and singing was very reminiscent of the original film and the entrance of Dick Van Dyke just complimented the casting of the film.
Happy Christmas and happy new year from all staff and member’s at Platinum Clubhouse .
