WEEKEND: Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance chance chance: Music of ABBA to resound through Rose Theatre on Saturday

PORT TOWNSEND — It’s not technically a sing-along movie — no lyrics appear on the screen — but belting will be strongly encouraged during the special showings of “Mamma Mia!” this Saturday.

The Port Townsend Film Institute is throwing this party, twice, at the Rose Theatre, 235 Taylor St.: “Mamma Mia!,” starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and the music of ABBA, will screen at noon and at 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

The late show is for the 21-and-older crowd.

Costumes are welcome, and the most illustrious will bring prizes provided by Universal Pictures, added film institute spokeswoman Victoria O’Donnell.

Moviegoers are invited to dress up as movie characters or as ABBA singers in vintage 1970s attire.

Admission to either screening is $15 for adults and $7 for children 12 and younger.

At the late show, Bainbridge Island distillers will offer organic cocktails.

More information about either screening — and about the Port Townsend Film Institute’s Academy Awards party Feb. 24 at the Northwest Maritime Center — awaits at www.PTFilmFest.com and 360-379-1333.

“Singing away the winter blues is a grand community effort,” O’Donnell noted.

“Now, where are your bell bottoms?”
