I know theaters have been doing this for a long time, but now that the Springer Opera House has a screen and it's been showing classic movies, it may be time.
I just got a brochure from the Capri Theater in Montgomery. It's a stand-alone theater that shows independent or art-house movies, as well as classics and film festivals.
On March 26, the Capri will be showing the Sing-a-Long version of "The Sound of Music." It's going to be presented by the Montgomery Chorale at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. EDT. The Capri is at 1045 E. Fairview Ave.
I'm guessing the Chorale will be off to the side and will lead the singing. Maybe booklets with lyrics will be handed out. Or maybe the lyrics will be superimposed on the screen.
I've never actually seen this kind of movie.
They're charging $25 ($15 for students 18 and younger).
There are all kinds of movie musicals, so I think if the Springer did it, there will be a packed house. And the Springer won't need a local chorale. They've got access to many, many actors who can sing.
What do you think?
