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 running from December 2nd through 24th, including our perennial audience favorite It’s A Wonderful Life showing as a double-feature with White Christmas.
Saturday, December 2nd at 9:15pm!
In this modern take on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Frank Cross (Bill Murray) is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen). But after firing staff member Eliot Loudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait) on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past. (1988, PG-13, 101mins)
A Christmas Story 40th Anniversary
Sunday, December 10th at 4pm and 7pm!
Wednesday, December 13th at 7PM!
There’s never been a Yuletide movie as funny as this 1983 Bob Clark classic. Based on humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the 1940s, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, the story is full of wonderful glimmers of nostalgia unhampered by sentimentality. With Peter Billingsley and Darren McGavin. (PG, 95 mins)
SPECIAL NOTE: We are pleased to announce our annual showing of A Christmas Story, 40th Anniversary Edition! 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 three showings of A Christmas Story we have scheduled leading up to Christmas. Rest assured that we are keeping our holiday movie tradition alive with this and other beloved films!
