The Beloit International Film Festival, in partnership with Beloit Parks and Leisure Services, will present the 1982 family classic Annie Wednesday (July 17) at Krueger Pool. The words from each song will appear at the bottom of BIFF’s 20 foot-wide inflatable movie scree,n so audience members can show off their pipes and join in the singing. The audience is also encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Annie character.
“We are hoping that the audience will be packed with a lot of Annie lookalikes and more than a few Daddy Warbucks and Miss Hannigans,” says Director of Parks & Leisure Services Brian Ramsey. “This is an immensely popular new film phenomenon designed to engage the whole audience.”
The film is scheduled to begin shortly after sunset at 8:30 p.m. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating; concessions will be available for purchase.
