Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

3:30pm - Sunday, May 21, 2023

"Be our guest..." and join us at the Rio Theatre for a family-friendly screening of one of Disney's most beloved animated classics, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Movie-lovers of all ages will delight in this gorgeous, romantic, sweet and funny telling of "a tale as old as time." See it again for the first time on the big screen! Even better? Kids pricing in effect!

An arrogant young prince (Robby Benson) and his castle's servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress, who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle (Paige O'Hara) enters the Beast's castle after he imprisons her father Maurice (Rex Everhart). With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts (Angela Lansbury), Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.

"In these sterile, technological days when creations of architecture, movies and other splendors are inferior to the classics of past ages, this artisan-crafted masterpiece is perhaps the closest we'll ever come to a Gothic cathedral." (Hollywood Reporter)

"It's exceptionally difficult to make an audience care for animated characters unless they're mermaids or anthropomorphized animals or insects, yet the Disney animators, with a big assist from the vocal talents of a superb cast, have pulled it off." (Seattle Times)

"There's no doubting the craftsmanlike elegance of the film, summoning up with relish the spirit of classic fairytale Disney of the 50s and 60s..." (Guardian)
