Mary Poppins (Rescheduled to June 9!)
Add to Cal
Due to inclement weather, the screening of Mary Poppins has been rescheduled to June 9.
Join us every other Friday from June 2-Aug. 25 (except for Saturday, July 29) for free movies in Railyard Park! The Santa Fe Railyard movie series takes place on the beautiful Railyard Park Performance Lawn in the heart of the Railyard Park, located at the intersection of Paseo De Peralta and Cerrillos Rd. Directions and parking info are on the Railyard web site. (You can also download a map [JPG] showing all of the Railyard parking and transportation options.)
- Chairs and blankets are welcome. No umbrellas, please.
- Picnics are welcome but NO ALCOHOL is allowed in City of Santa Fe Parks.
- Food trucks are at most movies.
- Well behaved, leashed dogs are ok, but it usually works better to leave your canine companions at home.
Register for the event and we'll send you updates if there are any schedule changes as well as info on future free Railyard programs and events around Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
Enjoy chalk drawing and kite making/flying with the Santa Fe Children's Museum before the show!
Julie Andrews made her Oscar-winning film debut as the "practically perfect" Mary Poppins, a magical nanny who enlightens the lives of everyone she meets while caring for a stiff banker's two children in London in the early 1900s.
"'Mary Poppins' is a near-masterpiece. It's the best of the first wave of Disney live-action features... there's a soulfulness to 'Mary Poppins' that was rare not just for the big Disney films of that era, but for the movie-musical genre in the 1960s... The sets are stunning. The special effects are creative, and still hold their magic. The Shermans' songs—to a one—are hummable and moving... the emphasis on joy and empathy proves heartening, even today.
"Credit the joy and empathy exhibited by the two leads. Van Dyke is cartoonish at times, but also nimble and wistful, showing a real sense of pleasure in performing, and a real depth of feeling toward Mary herself. And Andrews, in her first film role, is a force of nature. She exudes confidence and inner happiness, whether she's twirling about or shooting disapproving looks at misbehaving children and adults. Her Mary Poppins isn't the one from the books, and yet she's still practically perfect in every way."
