Animated Film “Encanto” Comes to Tibbits Big Screen

COLDWATER – Giving a nod to Tibbits Opera House’s days as a movie theatre from the 1930s-1950s, Popcorn Theatre will conclude the Tibbits Summer Theatre season with a film showing of Disney’s “Encanto” on the big screen August 4 and 5.

In this magical musical film, the multigenerational Madrigals are an extraordinary Colombian family who live hidden in the mountains in a charmed place called the Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift that helps them serve the people in their rural community — every child except Mirabel. When Mirabel learns that magic surrounding Encanto is in danger, she sets out to find out what is happening and save her family and their magical house.
