12 October - 13 October 2018

Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) is a wealthy drunk who starts having visions of a giant rabbit named Harvey. Elwood lives with his sister Veta (Josephine Hull) and her daughter (Victoria Horne), and Veta worries that Elwood has gone insane. In the process of trying to have him committed, Veta admits that she occasionally sees Harvey herself. The director of the mental home, Dr. Chumley (Cecil Kellaway), tries to reconcile his duty to help Elwood with his own growing experiences with Harvey.

Please note the 2pm showing is a Dementia Friendly screening and will feature a pre-film introductory talk from George Cromack, a short interval with refreshments as well as reduced price tickets for those living with dementia.

A teacher of creative writing and film studies, for a number of years George Cromack taught on the University of Hull’s Creative Writing programme at Scarborough, specialising in Scriptwriting for the Screen and the Radio. During this time he also developed and delivered a series of short open access creative writing based courses for adult learners.
