From the animation company behind the Despicable Me and Minions movies comes Sing, their first theatrical release following this summer’s wildly successful The Secret Life of Pets.
To promote Sing, on Saturday – nicknamed “Sing Saturday – November 26, the AMC theater at the Layton Hills Mall will host a free screening of Sing at 10:00 AM, which is nearly one month ahead of its nationwide release. Unlike most advance screenings that we promote on The Reel Place, this event will not require screening passes. This is a first-come, first-serve events, so all you need to do is show up early. Doors open at 9:00AM. Visit www.singsaturday.com for more details.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal — some might even say delusional — optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (Seth MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Tori Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Taron Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Scarlett Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
