All the fun from when our members took over their local ODEONs for a special screening of Mary Poppins Returns on 19 and 20 January

On a grey January weekend, thousands of girls jumped into a magical, upside-down, underwater world

They were at our very special ODEON screenings of Mary Poppin’s Returns - just for Girlguiding members. A whopping 44,445 Girlguiding members took over local cinemas from Bristol to Edinburgh for the event. There was also a chance to see our special Girlguiding film before the main event, which featured Guides interviewing the film's stars on the red carpet! Here’s what happened.

The adventure begins

Making their way to the local ODEON was half the adventure for some Brownies!

Popcorn at the ready

Girls - and quite a few volunteers 😁 - got snack ready before the screening kicked off. 🍿

Before the main event began, we were excited to show some very special Girlguiding films. One featured Tiana and Olivia from 1st North Lambeth Guides who interviewed the stars of the film on the red carpet at the premiere in December! They also gave them their very own Mary's Magic Movie Screening badge. Get yours here
