Temple Beth Israel, Laemmle host sing-a-long ‘Fiddler’ screening
For the seventh consecutive year, Temple Beth Israel will partner with Laemmle Theaters to present a “sing-a-long” holiday-time screening of the iconic musical “Fiddler on the Roof” on Tuesday evening, December 24 at the Lammele Claremont 5.
The program, which begins at 7 p.m., will be hosted by TBI’s Cantor Paul Buch and will include not only a digitally restored projection of the multi Academy Award-winning film complete with subtitles for every song, but a trivia competition and a costume parade.
Guests are invited to come dressed in character—who knows, there might even be an opportunity to show off their best Tevye or Golde impression!
“Those looking for an alternative Christmas Eve need look no further,” said Cantor Buch. “I look forward to it each year, and not just because it’s one of those rare times when you’re encouraged to talk and sing at the movies. To see this beautiful film on the big screen is a thrill.”
Adding a new wrinkle to this year’s program is that Christmas Eve happens to be the third night of Chanukah. This convergence allows Fiddler attendees to come together in celebration of the Jewish holiday. Hosts will lead the audience in traditional candle lighting and song.
A limited number of specially priced tickets are available through Temple Beth Israel at fiddlersingalongtbi2019. eventbrite.com, or through the TBI office.
Tickets can be also purchased laemmle.com or at the Laemmle 5 box office. For information, contact TBI at (909) 626-1277.
