D23 is proud to present the second film in our new “50 and Fabulous” screening series on the historic Walt Disney Studio Lot, honoring Disney movies celebrating their 50th anniversary. The delightful Pollyanna, starring Hayley Mills, will be screened inside the renovated, state-of-the-art, 400-seat Studio Theatre. The Theatre first screened Fantasia when it opened in 1940, and the craftsmanship and etched glass are inspired by the artistry of that groundbreaking film.
In the film, the orphaned Pollyanna (Hayley, who won an Academy Award® for her performance) goes to live with her wealthy, conservative Aunt Polly Harrington in a picturesque Vermont town. But eventually, Pollyanna is able to spread her optimistic, cheerful philosophy to her Aunt and eventually the entire town!
