All Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie Events are 21+ Only.
This screening will feature live music 30 minutes prior to start time.
Adapted from the long-running jukebox musical, Mamma Mia! brings together an all-star cast and some of ABBA’s most beloved hits for a joyful romp set against the swoon-worthy vistas of the Greek isles. Bride-to-be Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is determined to have the father she’s never met at her wedding, so she invites three potential candidates to the island resort operated by her free-spirited mom, Donna (Meryl Streep). What follows is a zany adventure full of romantic intrigue, uproarious comedy, and, of course, glitzy musical numbers.
Cast: Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Firth
