Julie Andrews made her Oscar-winning film debut as the “practically perfect in every way” 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. With the help of a carefree chimney sweep named Bert (Dick Van Dyke), the spirited nanny turns every chore into a game and every day into a “Jolly Holiday.” Enjoy the music, the magic, and the joy of Mary Poppins right here at The Paramount Theater.
In 1965, Mary Poppins won five Academy Awards (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Film Editing, Best Effects, Special Visual Effects, Best Music, Original Song, and Best Music, Substantially Original Score), and was nominated for eight others; won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical (Julie Andrews) and was nominated for three others; and won two Grammy’s (Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Show and Best Recording for Children). Don’t miss your chance to see this award-winning film on the largest screen in Central Virginia.
