Beauty and the Beast
Saturday 10:30 a.m., The Paramount Theater
1991, USA, 83 min.
Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise. Cast: Paige O'Hara, Robby Benson, Jerry Orbach.
The first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, Beauty and the Beast is more than a classic children’s film. It
is the story of a prince, cursed to live the life of a monster until he learns to love and be loved in return—and it is Belle, the lovely bookworm, who
rescues him from his Beastly existence. The film presents a strong female lead as the heroic figure, and has remained a family favorite since its
release in 1991, which was lauded by five other Academy Award nominations (and two wins) in addition to its Best Picture nod.
Discussion and live performance by Paige O’Hara, the uncomparable voice of Belle.
