SING, the highly-anticipated, animated film from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment debuted in theaters December 21. To celebrate early in Albuquerque, the Comcast team hosted community partners and influencers for a special advanced screening of SING at the downtown Cinemark 14 theater. In addition, several employees who won tickets to the screening during the Employee Giving Campaign for United Way attended with their families. Guests also included bigs and littles from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico and young students from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Mexico. Guests enjoyed fun and games before the movie including a green screen photo booth, giant floor keyboards, plus live entertainment from the Del Norte High School Show Choir.
SING is set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, SING stars Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
