Newsies: The Sing-Along
|Starring||Christian Bale, Bill Pullman|
NOTE: There will be no subtitles on screen at this event, but there will be lyric sheets so you can refresh all your SANTA FE memories and be ready to sing-along. There will also be FREE NEWSIES CAPS for everyone in attendance, so there's no need to go on strike!
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. We'll have a heel-clicking competition before the movie, free newspapers and newsies caps for everyone, and a theater full of other people awesome enough to understand how much fun NEWSIES really is.
