Tickets to see both films separately cost £6/£5 (concessions) but those booking both before January 5, can enjoy Mary Poppins for just £2.

Saving Mr Banks, being screened at the Lancaster cinema from January 3-9, tells how for 20 years Travers resisted Disney’s overtures to buy the rights to her creation until her book sales fell away and she finally relented.
