Weekend Activity Recommendation: The Greatest Showman


Early reports of the Bradley County's weekend weather forecast a rainy weekend, which is why we are recommending you go see The Greatest Showman in theaters before it leaves. 

The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman (rated PG for thematic elements including a brawl), stars Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams in a musical about the life of Phineas Taylor (P. T.) Barnum and the start of the “Greatest Show on Earth.”  The movie does a fantastic job of being a rocksolid musical while being family friendly as well. The movie also creates a bit of nostalgia for anyone that attended one of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus shows in their childhood. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus officially closed their doors in May of 2017, meaning that this movie is the closest that many will ever get to that experience.

Due to the nature of the movie’s telling of the “Greatest Show on Earth,”  this movie is best seen in theaters. The movie is currently playing at the AMC Bradley Square Mall Theater and also the UEC 14 theater in McDonald.
