Join Dorothy in belting out "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" tonight at Sing Sing's Sing-A-Long Cinemascreening of The Wizard of Oz. "It's really cool, because our dueling piano players play along to the movies and really incite the crowd to jump in and sing along," says Sing Sing's Tim Kirkland. "People have been really enthusiastic about it; some are coming every week."
Future titles include The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Chicago and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. "We've been drawing a pretty diverse crowd; it depends a lot on the film," Kirkland adds. "We got a lot of thirty-somethings in here for Grease. The Wizard of Oz will probably be more families."
The weekly songfests, held every Sunday night at 7 p.m., are open to all ages, and there is no cover charge. "I think it's one of those things that is going to grow by word of mouth," Kirkland says. "Hopefully, it will develop a cult-like following."
