Sing-Along Version of ‘Frozen’ in Theaters Now

If you are one of those who can’t get enough of “Let it Go,” you’ll be glad to know that starting today, Disney will be releasing special sing-along versions of the film in theaters across the country. The lyrics of all the songs will pop up on the screen followed by a bouncing snowflake.
