Festive Features for The Holidays!

In addition to our line up of new theatrical releases, we’ve put together a “Festive Features” series of popular seasonal classics for December, including our perennial audience favorite It’s A Wonderful Life showing on Sunday, 12/18, Wednesday 12/21, and Saturday, 12/24.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Saturday, December 17th at 3:30 pm!

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets — Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle — weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases — past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness. Directed by Brian Henson. (1Hr, 25Min)

It’s A Wonderful Life

Wednesday, December 21st at 3:30 & 7pm
Saturday, December 24th at 12 noon & 2:45pm

Jimmy Stewart plays small-town good guy George Bailey, who is confronted by his guardian angel (the jolly Henry Travers) while attempting suicide on Christmas Eve. It just isn’t Christmas without seeing Frank Capra’s heartwarming holiday classic on the big Naro screen with a crowd. With Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore. (G, 129 mins)

We are pleased to announce our annual showing of It’s A Wonderful Life! For over 40 seasons the Naro Cinema has brought the community this classic holiday treat. This year, we are fortunate enough to be included as one of the theaters showing it as a Fathom Event; as such we are not able to bring it to our audience as a double feature. We hope you can join us for one of the six showings of It’s A Wonderful Life we have scheduled leading up to Christmas.

While It’s A Wonderful Life cannot be part of our usual double feature, we are happy to impart we are still keeping the tradition alive.

A Christmas Story will accompany White Christmas as our double feature this year! We hope to see you this holiday season!
