Come to the Cabaret at New Dot's latest screening

* Liza with a Zee: Liza Minelli stars in Cabaret. 

The town's New Dot Cinema is kicking off this year’s Llangollen Fringe Festival in style with a screening of classic 1970s film Cabaret.

* Blues singer Betzy Jean.
The gala event is on Wednesday July 13 in the main room of Llangollen Town Hall.

Cinema organiser Yvonne Ryan said: "It's one of the greatest musicals of all time - eight Oscars, a divinely decadent score and Liza Minnelli – it’s the perfect way to get into the festival spirit this summer."

In addition to the main feature, rumour has it that the night will climax with an exciting blues singer, Betzy Jean, performing an exclusive, intimate set.

Formerly from Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, her power and passion is sure to raise goosebumps.

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm, ending at 11pm.

There's a licensed bar and homemade cake, with popcorn and ice cream served at your seat.

Tickets are £8 (£5 concessions) and are available at Bailey's deli and Maxine's cafe in Llangollen. Also online at and

As before, audience members are encouraged to dress up, this time in a hedonistic 1930s style.

Concession price tickets are available for those dressed in suitable vintage or themed attire, as well as the under 18's, over 60's, bus pass holders and students.

Cabaret (1972, cert 15), is set in Berlin during the last heady, bohemian days just before the Nazis seized power.

* The Mayor & Mayoress of Llangollen, Mike and Melanie Adams, promote Cabaret.

It tells the story of life inside and outside the Kit Kat Club where Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli), an exuberant young American singer, and the club’s leering emcee (Joel Grey) sound the call for decadent fun, while outside the doors of the club, the brutality of the rising Nazi party is becoming all too clear.

When Sally falls for Brian (Michael York), a young English university student, the two become caught in the intrigues and decadence of a world on the brink of tumultuous change.
