Patients at the Evelina Children's Hospital were delighted to be treated to an exclusive fun filled party and premiere of Disney's latest blockbuster Wreck-It-Ralph on Friday 1 February.
To top off the day they were surprised by a visit from Director of the film, Rich Moore, and Sarah Silverman who plays the voice of feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz in the film.
Patients gathered in the MediCinema at St Thomas' – where patients and staff can enjoy the latest film releases in a state-of-the art cinema.
An Evelina play specialist who entertains the patients while in hospital said: "The premiere was such a fantastic occasion! It was great to be able to get the patients away from the wards and into our cinema – and they were thrilled to be among the first to watch it."
Wreck-It-Ralph, is a Walt Disney Animation Studios film by Emmy® award winning director Rich Moore about a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. It opened at number one at the UK box office this weekend.
Disney has supported independent MediCinema since its launch when they sponsored a row of seats in their first cinema at St Thomas' Hospital in 1999.
