21 Things I Learned At Sing-Along-A-"Frozen"

Let it GOOOOOOOOOOO.

Posted on

1. This is Prince Charles Cinema in London, and it hosts a Sing-Along-a-Frozen.

It hosted its first Sing-Along-a-Frozen on 17 May 2014, and now has screenings "once or twice a week, with the other sing-alongs alternating once a week too", the cinema's Richard Hayward tells BuzzFeed Life.

2. It's always a full house.

On this Monday during half-term, the 1pm showing is fully booked, with 285 seats filled.

3. There are, as you would imagine, plenty of Elsas.

(What is the group noun for Elsas? An icicle of Elsas?)

"I know literally everything about Frozen," shouts an 8-year-old. "I don't need the lyrics!" To prove this, she begins singing: "The snow blows..."

4. And a few Olafs.

We spot quite a few Annas, an Olaf, and a king! (Left to right: Ruby, 8, Georgia, 6, Izzie, 6, Edward, 6.)

5. And lots of grown-ups too.

A small Elsa named Sophie is sat next to me. "Are you excited?" I ask. She nods. "A friend at work told me about this," her mum says, adding: "He brought his girlfriend!"

6. There is a real-life Elsa to warm us all up.

She is very good at singing, and at being a princess.

7. And then it's time for a fancy-dress parade.

A very regal selection of princesses (including a mum-and-daughter Elsa team) curtsy on the stage. We find out it's a princess named Erin's fifth birthday, so she is serenaded.

8. Finally! The lights dim, and Frozen begins.

9. Rightly, there's an "ewww" from the audience when Sven and Kristoff share a carrot.

10. Of course there's the "For the First Time in Forever" dance to do.

Three moves, but slightly complicated.

11. And minor characters get their chance to shine.

The Duke of Weselton gets big, big laughs from the room.

12. "Let It Go" is terrific fun.

(Turn the audio on for this)

13. Everyone is very excited for Elsa.

Frozen/Disney

When "Let It Go" finishes, there is a round of applause that lasts over a minute.

14. And Olaf's "Summer" song is very popular.

There's a house full of Olaf fans here, including Sophie from earlier.

15. There are, of course, some props involved. When the trolls are on screen, it's time to wave your grey balloon.

16. And you shake the clappers very hard when Kristoff and Sven are running.

(This happens a lot).

17. We all freeze and stay very still, like Anna.

18. And then something very special happens during this section of the film.

(We won't spoil the surprise).

19. We cheer when Elsa and Anna turn Arendelle into a winter wonderland.

20. Naturally, everyone wants to go again.

Ashley (Elsa) is 5 and from London, and says she had "a great time". Her sister (hiding behind the balloons) agrees.

Don't worry if you missed it this time round. Hayward tells BuzzFeed Life that Sing-Along-a-Frozen is currently so popular that it's "booked for multiple shows every weekend from now until the end of June 2015!"
