Beauty and the Beast is a live-action film based off of the Disney animated film of the same name. The story is about Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, who is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside. Beauty and the Beast is rated PG.
The movie will be projected onto a giant inflatable screen after sundown. Moviegoers should bring a blanket or low-back chairs. Pop-up tents, canopies, or beach umbrellas that can obstruct the view of others are not permitted. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Fred Lindstrom Park is located on Niagara Avenue and 6th Street, next to Peter Pan Market. Street parking is available but limited.
