Sky is offering free cinema tickets to the new Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson film 'Saving Mr. Banks', which premieres later this month.

The movie tells the true story of Walt Disney's mission to bring P. L. Travers' book 'Mary Poppins' to the big screen in the 1960s.

The author was reluctant to release the rights to her novel, but after 20 years finally agrees to travel to Los Angeles to hear what the cartoonist has to say.

Disney (Tom Hanks) arms himself with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs, but this only fuels Travers' (Emma Thompson) disapproval further.

Described as "an enchanting story" by Sky, 'Saving Mr. Banks' (Cert PG) tells the back-story to 'Mary Poppins', a classic film which has gone on to be loved by generations.

Sky customers can enjoy a special preview screening at selected cinemas around the country on Thursday October 31st.

They need to book tickets through the broadband provider by 5pm on the day, with seats allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
