Free movies at theater


There will be a free screening of the animated movie “Beauty and the Beast” on Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Webster Theater.

A documentary film crew is filming in Webster City this week, profiling the community and its story of working towards the American Dream following the closing of Electrolux in 2011.

As part of that film, they hope to recreate the day the Webster Theater opened for business.

The filmmakers are hoping to see as many faces attend the Saturday screening to show the community’s support of the theater and to celebrate it.


Van Diest Medical Center invites the community to a free showing of the movie, “Sing,” rated PG, on Monday, May 8 at 7 p.m. at the Webster Theater in Webster City.

“Sing” is an animated film based on a city of humanoid animals in which a hustling theater impresario’s attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates, even as finalists learn that their lives will never be the same.

The free community showing of “Sing” will kick-off National Hospital Week, celebrated, May 7 to 13, with this year’s theme, “The Healing Heart of Healthcare.”
