Winner of five Oscars, including Best Music and Best Actress for Julie Andrews, and nominated for seven more, Mary Poppins tells the story of a magical nanny hired by wealthy, workaholic parents to oversee their bored and neglected children. Mary (Julie Andrews) and her Cockney chimney-sweep friend Bert (Dick Van Dyke) embark on a series of fantastical adventures that enchant the children and get them to pass sunny enthusiasm on to their preoccupied parents.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
