After a long hiatus in the 80s, Beauty and the Beast was the movie that really brought me back into the love of Disney Animation. It’s hard to believe it was 19 years ago when it first hit theaters. Now, not only is it being released from the Disney Vault on to DVD, but it’s being prepped for a 3D version. To celebrate, Fathom Events and Disney have organized a Sing-Along Movie cinema event showcasing the restored movie and providing a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration process.
This event is for two days only – Wednesday September 29 at 6:30pm and Saturday October 2 at 12pm local time.
Visit the Fathom Events website for a link to participating movie theaters. Tickets are on sale now for Fathom Insiders and will go on sale on the 27th to the general public.
