FILM SCREENING: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (2017)
Tuesday, July 31 - 1:00pm - Auditorium. Come and join Bob for this live-action remake, to be shown on the big screen in the Auditorium, of Disney’s classic love story. ‘Beauty lies within’ is what an enchantress expects a vain and arrogant prince (Dan Stevens) to know. He learns it the hard way when her curse turns him into a terrifying beast. Her spell can only be broken if he finds true love. Meanwhile, Belle (Emma Watson), the non-conforming daughter of a village inventor and artist, seeks an adventure. She stumbles upon the beast and magic unfolds. Bill Condon’s recreation is delectably mesmerizing and magical, and the special effects, sound, costumes, voice-overs, and songs will make you live the fairy-tale as you are transported to the castle along with Belle, experiencing her adventure.
