Ciné17 offers 10 double tickets to see FROZEN 3D from 4 December, 2013

When Ciné17 first offered us 10 double tickets for our clients to see the latest animated fairy tale from Disney, we were obviously extremely grateful. However, we didn’t immediately appreciate how lucky we were until we started reading the blurb they sent us!

Not only is FROZEN being projected in amazing 3D, but it is the first Disney movie to be shown in widescreen CinemaScope format since Sleeping Beauty – and Ciné17 is the only cinema in Geneva to be fitted with a screen that allows non-truncated pictures to be displayed in their original ration of 2.40:1.  So if you want to enjoy the full glory of Disney’s latest animated extravaganza, then Ciné17 is really THE place to go and see it!

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, The Snow Queen, FROZEN is packed with lots of contemporary attitudes and female empowerment touches that will appeal to both little girls and their moms.  Energetic and funny, this musical animation is the first of its kind to warn of global cooling rather than warming, and includes some great vocal performances from stars such as Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel.

The story is essentially the tale of two sisters, Elsa and Anna, who are raised in an enormous castle, but then lose their parents to a shipwreck. Forced to take the throne in her late teens, Elsa is aware that she possesses “dark powers”, but removes the gloves that normally keep them in check during her coronation, with inevitable consequences…..

To find out what happens next, then bring your children to see what is sure to be one of the most successful, animated blockbusters this year.  FROZEN will start showing at Ciné17 from 4 December, every day in the early afternoon, as well as matinees on Sundays during the Christmas and New Year period.
