Hit Movie Slumdog Millionaire Comes To Museum

One of the hit films of 2009 will come to the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, this spring when British blockbuster ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is shown at the venue in May.

The hit movie – which won eight Oscar awards after it was released in January – comes to the Cirencester museum on Saturday May 30th and Sunday May 31st as part of the Rural Cinema Scheme. Both showings will start at 2.15pm.

The film, based in India in 2006, tells the tale of a young man from Mumbai, Jamal, who is in the hot seat during the Indian version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’. It charts Jamal’s experiences as he grows up in and around modern-day Mumbai, which provide him with the knowledge to answer questions on the popular tv show.

Starring Dev Patel and Freida Pinto, the movie – which was also filmed in India – has already won awards worldwide, including eight Oscars, four Golden Globes and seven BAFTAs. It is directed by Danny Boyle and has a 15 age certificate.

Booking for this popular film is essential and tickets cost £4 (£2.80 concessions).

Anyone interested should contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 or email museums@cotswold.gov.uk
