The film will kick off the sixth season of the free Cards Under the Stars summer movie series at 6:30 p.m. on the lawn between the Natural Sciences Building and Grawemeyer Hall, off Third Street near Eastern Parkway. The film begins at dusk.

Pre-movie activities include:

  • Meet and greet with Anna and Elsa 
  • Children’s inflatables and games
  • Appearances by members of the Louisville League of Mascots

Concessions will be available for purchase from Sweet ‘N’ Savory and Red Top Gourmet Hot Dogs.

Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets and picnic baskets and coolers with snacks and drinks to make for a comfortable evening. Parking is available in the lots next to Grawemeyer Hall (2301 S. Third St.) and behind Ernst Hall (216 Eastern Pkwy.).

“Frozen” tells the story of two sisters in the kingdom of Arendelle. Fearless optimist Princess Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister, Queen Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom and bring back summer. 

Cards Under the Stars will continue Friday, June 26, with “Big Hero 6.” The series will conclude Friday, July 24, with a film to be named later. The campus community can vote on the July 24 film online at through May 30.
