Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the journey of Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken captive by the beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff where the servants have been magically turned into household objects 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. The film is rated PG.

There will be pre-show entertainment, including a prize giveaway and an art activity for keiki prior to the film. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from local food trucks.

Guests are invited to bring beach chairs and blankets to lay back and enjoy the show under the stars. (No coolers or outside food/drink are allowed into the venue). If it’s raining, the film will be shown in the Castle Theater on a first-come, first-seated basis.
