The Priory Film Club has been running a special season of films to give Residents a chance to appraise Disney’s new slate of movie remakes.

Colleagues hit upon the idea after realising they could screen double bills each Friday that included the original Disney film and the new version.

Although they built their formidable reputation in animation, in recent years Disney has released a slew of live-action remakes of their classic features.

So, Residents at the Priory have been sitting down with their cinema refreshments to appraise their efforts.

Home Manager Subin Sebastian said the double bills had been a hit.

Subin said: “Residents have found it very interesting to compare the films, especially when they look at how far the technology has come.

“We’ve watched The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast and more Disney classics, and it’s been really popular.

“There’s a lot of debate over which version is better, especially when the originals are often so well-loved by families. It’s an enjoyable activity for a Friday afternoon.”

The Disney season will take a break in December as the Film Club switches their attention to Christmas favourites. First up is Jim Carrey’s seasonal adventure, The Grinch, which Residents hope will get them in the Christmas spirit.
