Mary Poppins posterStealing a page from the wildly popular Cinema Under the Stars which is held in downtown Regina each summer, Government House is holding an outdoor movie screening of its own on Sunday Sept. 7.

The movie being shown is the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews and Dick van Dyke. It’s set in Edwardian London in 1910, and in a neat twist of synchronous fate Sunday’s screening is being held in the Edwardian Garden on the Government House grounds.

There probably won’t be any dancing cartoon penguins in attendance, but some fun-filled family activities are planned, and popcorn and other snacks will be available for purchase. The evening will start at 6 p.m., and the screening will begin at dusk. For more information call 639-571-7123.
