Another sign this culture is getting Frozen over: Disney's Hollywood Studios is about to get in on the act by adding "Frozen Summer Live" July 5 through Sept. 1 with Anna, Elsa and mountain main Kristoff making a royal procession down the park's Hollywood Boulevard each day at 11 a.m.

As if you don't already have Let it Go ringing through your ears every day, the park will have a Frozen sing-along as part of a 20-minute show on the history of Arendelle in the park's Premier Theater presented several times a day. In its own version of Flat Stanley, pictures of Olaf, the film's snowman sidekick will be passed out. If you tag it #OlafSummerVacation you might be featured in the pre-fireworks show, which will also be Frozen themed with blue and white fireworks set to the film's soundtrack at 9:45 p.m. nightly.

And you can get some relief from the heat in "Frozen Funland" in Soundstage One, where you can watch ice carving, buy hot cocoa and get virtual photo ops with animated characters. Note that the only meet and greet sessions with characters is still at the Magic Kingdom's Princess Hall, where people often wait more than three hours for a picture with Elsa.

    Pumpkin with farro, cranberries and walnuts is good hot or cold.

    Oh, the poor triangle. It's the orchestra equivalent of a rock band's tamborine, and such easy fodder for jokes.

  4. Andy Serkis' directing debut 'Breathe' is not so inspiring

    Movies

    After such a revolutionary acting career, Andy Serkis should be expected to make an equally inventive directing debut. Breathe is anything but that.

    Clare Foy and Andrew Garfield star in Breathe as Robin and Diana Cavendish, an English polio victim and his devoted wife, who pioneered disability rights and wheelchairs with ventilators. [Imaginarium]
