I’m excited to attend a screening tonight and will let you know what I think afterward. I’m trying to avoid others reviews in the meantime, but from what has slipped through on Twitter, fans of the original film are excited about this remake and others think it’s a great expansion of the original story. Stay tuned.

“Beauty and the Beast,” which brings the story and characters audiences know and love to life in a stunning, cinematic event, opens in theaters nationwide this Friday, March 17. Will you be seeing the tale as old as time on opening weekend?

One thought on “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast screens for special audiences in New York City

    No, most of the singing on the audio clips that have been posted on various websites is not good. Why would you make a movie as costly as this and cast actors that can’t sing? I’ll stick with the animated classic and my memories of seeing the original Broadway cast in NY.
