BIFF Sing-A-Long 2020
The Blues Brothers
The Blues Brothers are back and BIFF is joining them on a mission from God.
Get your BIFF experience into high gear with the BIFF Sing-Along presentation of the greatest musical adventure film of all time, The Blues Brothers, starring Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi and a mind-blowing array of timeless musical figures from Cab Calloway and James Brown to Chaka Khan, John lee Hooker and Aretha Franklin. The music almost never stops. Whether you know the words to sing—the words will magically appear on the screen—or you just want to hum along, it will be a great group experience.
This year’s BIFF Sing-Along will highlight the first weekend of BIFF2020 on Saturday Feb. 22. It marks a return to The Castle at 501 Prospect Ave in downtown Beloit, which was the setting for BIFF’s sold out silent Phantom of the Opera several years ago. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30. There will be music and a cash bar before and after the screening.
The audience is invited to come attired as their favorite characters from the film. Sister Mary Stigmata, muse of the Blues Brothers, will be on hand to judge costumes and award prizes.
The BIFF Sing-Along is once again Sponsored by the Janesville law firm of Brennan Steil S.C. Attorneys. The 1980 film, set in Chicago, follows Jake and Elwood Blues as they put their band back together in order to raise the funds needed to pay the overdue property taxes and save the orphanage where they grew up.
There is limited seating and past events at The Castle have sold out in advance. BIFF suggests that you purchase your tickets soon.
