Unless you have been under a pile of snow, you know Frozen 2 hits theaters tomorrow (Thursday)! On the Upper West Side you can see the movie at AMC Lincoln Square 13, AMC 84th Street 6, and AMC Orpheum 7. This sequel will explore why Elsa was born with her magical powers and the truth about her past. The answers are out there and she will go into the unknown to find them. She will face all kinds of dangers, but with the help of her loving sister Anna, and her friends Kristoff, Olaf and Sven she knows she can face anything.
