Century 10 Cinema showing ‘Frozen’ sing-along version
On Friday, 2,057 theaters nationwide, including south Fargo’s Century 10 Cinema, started offering a sing-along version of the popular musical along with the regular version.
Derek Pikop, Century 10’s general manager, says fans have returned to see “Frozen” multiple times.
“They’ve really grown to love it and know the music really well, so I’m thinking some of them are probably excited to have the opportunity to make some noise in a place where you’re mostly asked to stay quiet,” he says.
The Disney Animation blockbuster follows Princess Anna, mountain man Kristoff and his reindeer companion, Sven, on their quest to find Anna’s sister, Queen Elsa, whose powers have trapped their kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.
According to TheWrap.com, “Frozen” has taken in more than $810 million globally since opening at Thanksgiving.
The movie’s also topping the music charts.
The latest Billboard 200 chart shows the “Frozen” soundtrack has returned to No. 1 after selling 93,000 copies in the week ending Jan. 26, with Oscar Best Original Song nominee “Let It Go” leading the way.
Pikop says the sing-along is a unique experience for moviegoers.
“The thing about movie theaters is it’s a communal experience, so this allows you to go and let loose and have fun with other people that are wanting to do the same thing,” he says.
Audiences can follow the bobbing snowflake starting at 4:55 p.m. today, Wednesday or Thursday. Assisted-listening devices are available.
