Sing For Your Popcorn


OK, it's not exactly like throwing toast at the screen at a midnight showing of Rocky Horror, but ABBA fans who wouldn't set foot in a karaoke bar can now sing along to Mamma Mia! screenings without being shushed by overly officious ushers. What started as a grass-roots phenomenon (in places like San Jose) has now been officially recognized by Universal Pictures, which has announced that sanctioned sing-alongs will begin Aug. 29 in theaters across the country. Why not? The average Mamma Mia! ticket buyer can surely belt it out better than vocally challenged Pierce Brosnan. — Movie News Bureau
