If you live in the DFW metroplex, head over to the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson tomorrow evening for a Newsies sing-along! There is a pre-show at 6:30, that includes a costume contest to win a 4-pack of tickets to the opening night of “Newsies” when it arrives in Dallas. The sing-along begins at 7:00.
From the event site (http://drafthouse.com/movies/Newsies-The-Sing-Along/dfw):
Long before Christian Bale started talking funny as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, he was doing awesome things with his voice in movies for the Mouse House. Nowhere is there a better example of this then in his breakout role in Disney’s musical tribute to turn of the 20th century paperboys who become friends with Bill Pullman and then decide that it’s time to stick it to the man by going on strike from their jobs and turning to street performance art and super high heel-clicks to make the bosses understand their plight. And the world would know that they’re the kings of New York, all because they had the courage to open the gates and seize the day.
So yeah, it’s a hard movie to take seriously, but you won’t need to worry about that because you’ll be having a serious amount of fun at the Action Pack’s Sing-Along celebration of the last great Hollywood musical – NEWSIES.
Now, who should I dress up as, Sarah Jacobs or a newsgirl?
