Moviegoers who find it hard to resist the urge to sing along with the music of Disney’s “Frozen” soon won’t have to, even when watching the movie on the big screen. Movie theaters across the country will offer a special special sing-along version of “Frozen,” announced Walt Disney Studios on Jan. 22.

The special "Frozen" screenings begin Jan. 31 for select showings, with the singalong version playing in 1,000 movie theaters nationwide.

"'Frozen' fans have embraced the film's original songs and its soundtrack with such passion," Dave Hollis, Disney's executive vice president of theatrical distribution said in a media statement. "It's a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun with these songs."

The sing-along version uses on-screen lyrics and a "magical bouncing snowflake" to help moviegoers make beautiful music together, along with "Frozen" voice actors Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Santino Fontana and (all-too-briefly) Jonathan Groff.

Among the 1,000 U.S. movie theaters to get the “Frozen” sing-along is Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre, which is owned by Disney. At this location, the sing-along experience will include on-stage appearances from the movie’s Elsa before each screening, as well as snow flurries inside the venue. Showtimes are at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m.

Moviegoers should check local listings for other participating theaters and showtimes.

Disney’s announcement recognizes audience and critical response to “Frozen’s” songs, an aspect which was initially underplayed in the film’s promotion as an action adventure comedy. The movie’s soundtrack topped the Billboard charts for weeks, and “Frozen” has received an Oscar nomination for best original song for “Let It Go,” Elsa’s anthemic signature song. “Let it Go” is performed by Menzel in the film, and Demi Lovato in the end credits.

“Frozen” is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest box-office hit since 1994’s “The Lion King.” The movie has grossed more than $337 million domestically and $737 million worldwide since its November release.
