Emile Ardolino | USA 1992 | 100 mins  |  Certificate PG

To raise funds for next year’s New Cross + Deptford Free Film Festival, we bring you the much-loved comedy Sister Act – on the big screen inside Deptford’s St Nicholas Church – with a live performance by the church’s gospel choir.

When her mobster boyfriend puts her on the hit list, Deloris goes into hiding in a San Francisco nunnery. But what can a rambunctious lounge singer do to fit into the ordered calm of a convent? With star turns from Whoopi Goldberg as Deloris and Maggie Smith as Mother Superior, Sister Act is a movie brimming with laughter, music and soul.

Bring all the family to the event of the summer – the sing-along version of Disney’s FROZEN at the beautiful Charlton House. From the outside Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but she lives in fear of her secret power to create ice and snow. When her magic nearly kills her younger sister Anna, Elsa isolates herself. Anna, a fearless optimist, sets off on an epic journey – with rugged Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister, and encounters Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf.
