It looks like the Disney movie “Frozen II” should be very popular in Charles City this month.
Besides the regular evening showings, there are multiple opportunities for kids to see it during free sponsored matinees at The Charles Theatre.

The family and friends of Steve Buseman are sponsoring a matinee in Buseman’s memory at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15, and all children age 12 and under will get in free and will get a free kiddie combo of popcorn and pop. Doors will open at 1 p.m.

“In honor of Steve’s love for children and the youth of our community, this was the perfect time to do this,” said Steve’s mother, Nadonne Buseman.

She said the family hopes to sponsor a free kids matinee every year.

Buseman died Jan. 26, 2019, at age 53.

Previously, Jeremy Rogstad of State Farm Insurance in Charles City announced he would again this year sponsor a free matinee.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. for the 1:30 p.m. showing of “Frozen II” on Sunday, Dec. 22, at the Charles Theater, and all children 12 and under will be admitted free. Any kids who come dressed as characters from the “Frozen” movies will also get a free kiddie combo, Rogstad said.

There will be another chance to see the film, at no charge, the day after Christmas.

On Thursday, Dec. 26, CUSB Bank in Charles City is sponsoring a free 1:30 p.m. matinee for all.

The Charles Theatre will also be showing the movie to children from Nashua-Plainfield schools on Friday, Dec. 13, Central Springs on Monday, Dec. 16, Lincoln and Washington Elementary schools in Charles City on Thursday, Dec. 19, and Clarksville on Friday, Dec. 20.

“Frozen II,” rated PG, will be playing at The Charles from Dec. 13-26. Regular admission prices will be charged for the 7 p.m. daily showtimes.
