Well, goodbye, Gov’ner.

Over a thousand fans traveled from as far as Pennsylvania on Sunday evening to bid bon voyage to award-winning actor, playwright and Inwood native, Lin-Manuel Miranda — who hosted Sunday night’s screening of Disney’s original “Mary Poppins” at the United Palace Theatre as he prepares to move to London to film a remake.

Miranda, who launched the historic theater’s “Reawaken Wonder at a Timeless Movie Palace” campaign to raise an additional $300,000, has been involved with the theater since 2013, when he hosted the 5-year anniversary concert of his breakout Broadway hit “In the Heights” and several movie events.

But shortly after Miranda’s presentation, fans in the audience were the one to put on a show for him — surprising him by creating a massive card of red and yellow of placards that spelled out a modified line from “Mary Poppins,” saying, “Goodbye Lin Manuel Don’t Stay Away Too Long.”
