The ODEON Blackpool is hoping to attract some of the world’s biggest golf names through its doors for a charity screening of Caddyshack.

The cinema is celebrating The Open Championship being played at Royal Lytham St Annes by showing the classic golf comedy in aid of Variety – The Children’s Charity on July 17 at 6.15pm.

Caddyshack is the favourite golf movie of many of the game’s biggest stars and it is hoped that a famous face or two may visit to support this great cause.

ODEON manager Colin Alexander said: “I’m a massive golf fan and love this film. I hope other golf fans in the area for The Open may drop in to watch this hilarious film.

“We have already had a lot of interest from some of golf’s biggest tweeters on Twitter. Hopefully some of them may drop in after a hard day’s practice.”

In case you have been spending too many hours on the fairways the story is one of Slobs vs Snobs at exclusive, blue-blood Bushwood Country Club. Judge Smails tries desperately to maintain the dignity of the institution, even as boorish outsiders like real estate developer Al Czervik intrude on the serenity of the place.

The working-class caddies, such as Danny Noonan , try to earn a little money and the slightest crumb of respect from the wealthy patrons who golf there. Noonan tries desperately to obtain the Bushwood College scholarship, though his efforts to kiss up to the Judge Smails prove futile. After a series of misadventures, and a climactic final gold tournament, Czervik shows the Judge who’s really the best golfer at Bushwood.

The film features some famous faces such as Bill Murray, Chevy Chase (pictured left) and Rodney Dangerfield. Tickets are on sale now priced at just “fore” (£4) pounds with every penny going to Variety - The Children’s Charity.

Tickets can be booked online at or at the box office.
