Someone planning film screenings around the Valley has a sense of humor.
In the next couple of weeks, audiences can expect one of the scariest movies of all time, a sing-along, animated Disney classic, and a musical documentary about the Jewish culture of Poland to hit local theaters.
"Beauty and the Beast" will begin showing around the Valley today, to be followed later by "The Exorcist" and "100 Voices: A Journey Home."
Our question is, will anyone be going to all three?
