Granite Shoals Hosting Free Screening of Disney’s ‘Frozen’ on Jan. 20
GRANITE SHOALS — With Old Man Winter bringing below-freezing temperatures and forcing people to stay indoors, members of the Granite Shoals Parks Committee were inspired to offer an appropriate selection for its free movie night Saturday.
Walt Disney’s “Frozen” will be shown at 6 p.m. Jan. 20 in the community center at Park No. 1, located at 103 E. Greencastle.
There will be free popcorn, but moviegoers are encouraged to bring snacks and soft drinks as well as seating or blankets.
The 2013 animated film is about Princess Elsa of Arendelle, who accidentally hurt her younger sister, Anna, with her cryokinetic magic. Anna is healed by other magical creatures, who advise Elsa to learn to control her magic. Instead, she only restrains her powers, which causes a disconnect with Anna.
City Manager Ken Nickel said the last time the committee hosted a free movie night, during the summer, the outdoor event drew 80 attendees.
“That’s the kind of thing I want our community center and parks to do – to think outside the box,” he said.
The committee wants to host two movie gatherings a year: one in the winter and another in the summer.
The city manager commended the parks committee for wanting to host the event.
“I’m real pleased our parks committee is doing that,” he said. “They think it’s a way of neighbors meeting neighbors.”
