Kenneth More Theatre is dedicating a weekend in October to two family favourite hit films for the ultimate sing-a-long fest.

Fans will be able to Let it Go as a bouncing snowflake guides the audience through the on-screen lyrics of Disney’s mega-hit Frozen.

Lee Thompson, director of Jack Productions, is looking forward to bringing cinema to the theatre for the first time.

“This is really exciting,” he said. “We are showing two films that mean so much to two completely different generations.”

Frozen is ranked as the highest-grossing animated film of all time and centres on the relationship between two sisters.

For those who like to channel their inner Elsa in secret, an adult-only evening performance of the film will also be screened.

Enthusiasts who prefer cars that are automatic, systematic, or hydromatic will be able to enjoy a viewing of the 1978 classic film Grease.

The long-standing fan favourite features Hollywood stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and charts the romance between a pair of students who fall in love one summer and then unexpectedly find that they attend the same high school, Rydell High.

Both films will be introduced by a live host and played on a six-metre wide high-definition screen.

Lee said: “It’s all about having fun and the audience are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character.

“We have a host who will make sure the vocal chords are nicely warmed up before the film starts and then people get to sing at the top of their voices throughout the film.

“My idea of a perfect night.”

Grease is on October 10. Frozen is on October 10 and 11. Visit kmtheatre.co.uk or call 020 8553 4466 for ticket prices and more information.
