It was literally an outstanding crowd that came to see the children’s movie “Frozen” at the Kent Theatre over the weekend. “Out standing” is what they were doing—lined up in the cold, waiting to get in. And some were still turned away.
It’s the first movie sell-out the Kent Theatre has had since began showing movies again several years ago. “It was amazing,” remarked Len Allington, president of the Cedar Springs Theatre Association. He noted that it was a sell out weekend—more than 1,400 people saw 8 showings of “Frozen,” which had three showings Friday and Saturday, and two on Sunday.
To accommodate those people who did not get a chance to see the movie but tried to, they are holding it over for this Friday. It will show at 6 and 9 p.m.
On Saturday and Sunday, they will show “The Book Thief,” a film set in Germany during World War II. It is rated PG-13.
