Sing 2 is the latest film featured in Boston Mayor Michelle Wu’s Movie Nights program, which runs through September 1 in parks around Boston. The screening begins at dusk in Roslindale’s Healy Playground.
The series, part of the Boston Parks and Recreation Department’s ParkARTS program, gives residents and visitors the chance to enjoy popular films under the night skies. All movie night screenings are free and do not require preregistration.
Sing 2 begins as theater owner Buster Moon and his troupe of animal performers prepare to launch a new musical in Redshore City, the entertainment capital of the world. But talent scout Suki is not impressed with Buster’s previous shows and does not believe he will be successful in Redshore City. Buster must now persuade reclusive rock star Clay Calloway to join—and save—the new production.
The sequel to Sing (2016) stars Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, Scarlett Johansson as Ash, Tori Kelly as Meena, Halsey as Porsha Crystal, Pharrell Williams as Alfonso, Nick Offerman as Norman, and Bono as Clay Calloway.
