Future Five: Entertainment for the week ahead
From a Disney sing-along to an American Idol in C-U — Tim Mitchell's entertainment recommendations for the week ahead.
New to DVD today: "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn." Directed by Phil Alden Robinson of "Field of Dreams" fame, it's the story of a "curmudgeonly" man (played by Robin Williams) who learns from a doctor (Mila Kunis) that he only has 90 minutes left to live.
Holy smokes, it's Batman Day at the Champaign Barnes & Noble. The fun includes a Lego build of Gotham City, Caped Crusader-themed story time for the little ones and a Batman action figure giveaway. Call 217-355-2264 to sign up. Space is limited.
At 6 p.m., the Virginia Theatre presents the first of four showings of "Frozen," sing-along style. Follow the bouncing ball and join in for "Let It Go" and other favorites from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack. Other showings: 6 p.m. Friday and 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday.
Remember Scotty McCreery from season 10 of American Idol? The hit series' youngest male winner will be Friday night's Champaign County Fair music headliner. Fellow TV star Gracia Harrison ("The Voice," season 3) will join him on the grandstand. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Downtown Sidney is the place to be for Summer Fun Daze. The lineup includes a car show, carnival, bean bag tournament, twilight parade and, most enticing of all: a breakfast of bacon, eggs, biscuits, gravy, home fries and fruit, sponsored by the fire department, from 7 to 10 a.m.
