Parkinson’s UK New Forest Branch ‘Parkinson’s Friendly’ Cinema Club – Matilda the Musical

Next Parkinson’s UK New Forest Branch ‘Parkinson’s Friendly’ Film Club Screening will be Friday, December 16 at 11:00 + Christmas party lunch at the Malt Cinema in the Lymington Centre.

In collaboration with the Lymington Center, we show Mathilde the musical – with Emma Thompson, Stephen Graham, Andrew Riseborough and Alisha Weir. It’s the story of Matilda’s Roald Dahl, the smart, lonely little girl with secret X-men-like superpowers, sent to a horrible school run by a hideous disciplinary called Mrs. Trunchball, like a cross between a gun and an attack dog. Matilda has a sharp mind and a wild imagination and dares to take a stand to change her story with miraculous results!

A fun, jubilant, dazzling film not to be missed! Matilda has the power of telekinesis!

Tickets cost £7 pp to see the film or £15.50 pp for the film and Christmas lunch!

  • Tickets for the film or film + lunch can be booked online (, by phone (01590 672337) or at the Lymington Center reception (New Street, Lymington, SO41 9BQ), either in advance, either the same day. Pre-booking for lunch would be best if possible, but you can always book it on the day.
  • A buffet lunch will be provided by the Lymington Center in one of their function rooms after the film – a chance to compare notes on what you thought of the film!
  • If you are bringing a wheelchair, please book your ticket through the Lymington Center
