Bells of the Sound will present a concert program of some of the most memorable movie music in A Night at the Movies. From classics like Brazil, American Graffiti and Star Wars, to musicals like Fiddler on the Roof, Sound of Music and Anything Goes and children’s favorites like The Muppet Movie, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, we’ll have you reaching for the popcorn and Raisinets in no time! This program will be presented at 7:30 PM on Friday, May 14, 2010 at Tibbetts United Methodist Church, 3940 41st Avenue SW in Seattle. A suggested donation of $10/adults and $8/youth and seniors will be collected at the door (children under 8 are free).
