About The Event
Join us for a screening of the iconic 1996 musical film depicting the life of Eva Peron. Starring Madonna as Eva, Jonathan Price as Eva's husband, Juan Peron and Antonio Baderas as Ché. Don’t cry for me Argentina! Directed by Alan Parker, the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice masterwork Evita revolutionised musical theatre on film: the rags to riches rise to power of the wife of an Argentinian dictator. Soaring songs like ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’, ‘High Flying Adored’, and the tune everybody in the world can hum, ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’. Filmed as realistically as is possible; mostly in the story’s actual locations. And, possibly for the first time in a film musical, sung without spoken dialogue, from beginning to end. Starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
The screening will take place in the crypt.
