Come see movies the way they were meant to be seen...on the big screen with amazing surround sound in the Library's newly renovated Salem Family Auditorium.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

Disney's version of Beauty and the Beast is adapted from the fairy tale by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve.

Free and open to all.
