In celebration of the 25th anniversary of "Beauty and the Beast," The Walt Disney Studios and the Film Society of Lincoln Center presented an exclusive screening of the beloved animated classic at Alice Tully Hall. It was here, in September 1991, that a work-in-progress version of "Beauty and the Beast" was first screened at the New York Film Festival -- and received a standing ovation. This "tale as old as time" went on to break ground as the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award® nomination, and twenty-five years later audiences of all ages continue to fall in love with this enchanting tale, its captivating characters and unforgettable, award-winning music score and original song, "Beauty and the Beast."

In attendance were: Robby Benson (voice of Beast), Paige O'Hara (voice of Belle), Angela Lansbury (voice of Mrs. Potts),Richard White (voice of Gaston), Don Hahn (Producer), plus Robert Lopez (Frozen) Jim Gaffigan, Linda Larkin (voice of Jasmine), Mario Cantone (Sex and the City), Richard Kind (Inside Out), Bethenny Frankel (RHONY), Sarah Wynter(American Odyssey), Paige Davis (Broadway's Babette), Patrick Davis (Broadway's Lumiere), Kelly Bensimon (RHONY),Aviva Drescher (RHONY).

Here are some pictures of this nostalgic, magical evening.
