Free showing of 'Frozen' at MACC

August 31, 2014 - Leah Sherman

The insanely popular animated movie “Frozen” will be shown for free Sunday night (Aug. 31) as part of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Starry Night Cinema.

The movie starts at 7:30 p.m. in the outdoor A&B Amphitheater. Gates open at 6 p.m., with music, prizes and art activities for the kids, according to the MACC website (see link at right).

Bring low lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the show. I've said it before — what's better than a movie under the stars?

Outside coolers and food are prohibited. But there will be food for sale, including items from Las Pinatas, Pascuals Cafe and Sumo Dogs as well as shave ice, cotton candy and alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.

I've never seen “Frozen” myself, but 95 percent of the children I know are nuts for it, so it must be a must-see. For anyone else out there who is unfamiliar with the movie, here's a brief synopsis (paraphrased from the MACC website): Based on “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Anderson, “Frozen” tells the tale of Elsa, princess of Arendelle, who possesses powers with which she is able to produce ice, frost and snow. Elsa's sister falls in love with Prince Hans of the Southern Isles, and he proposes to her but Elsa forbids their hasty marriage. The sisters argue and Elsa inadvertently unleashes her icy powers. Eternal winter settles on the kingdom. Horrified, Elsa flees the castle and hides in a solitary ice palace. Anna sets out in search of her sister, determined to return her to Arendelle, end the winter and mend their relationship.
