Film4 Summer Screen - Sleeping Beauty

Book Tickets
  • The Film4 Summer Screen presents a night that will truly be Once Upon a Dream as Sleeping Beauty fills the courtyard with colour, romance, music and animated magic.

    This 1959 favourite was Disney’s most elaborate and expensive film at the time of release, and even now you can still see how special it is.

    Sleeping Beauty may have been very much in the Disney tradition of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Cinderella, but it had a presence all of its own, being only the second of the studio’s releases to be presented in widescreen. That extra size helps it to cast a powerful spell when seen on the big screen – there’s virtually nothing in the history of animation that can match the fiery climactic showdown between the Prince and the dragon. And for a summer’s evening under the stars what could be better than the instantly recognisable music adapted from Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty ballet, from which the film’s signature song also emerges.

    Simply put, this is what dreams are made of.

    At Somerset House on the Strand on 19 August 2018, book your Sleeping Beauty tickets today!
