Classic Holiday Films Hit the Big Screen at The State Theatre
Looking for a new holiday tradition?
There's still time to experience a classic holiday film on the big screen.
Over the next several days, The State Theatre is showing several classic holiday films, including the 1954 film "White Christmas" and the 1983 film, "A Christmas Story."
"It's exciting to see these classic films on the big screen. Most people have only seen them on television and it's a completely different experience in the theatre," said State Theatre Artistic Director Richard Biever.
The audience is broad; from film buffs to entire families seeing a classic Christmas film as an annual tradition, Biever said.
"It is a magical experience to see the films on the big screen and with an audience," Biever said.
A showing of the 1946 film, "It's a Wonderful Life" starring James Stewart, will be 7:30 p.m. Friday.
A showing of "White Christmas" starring Bing Crosby will be at 4 p.m. Monday.
"A Christmas Story" starring Peter Billingsley will start at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Tickets are $5.
The theatre is also offering a live performance of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" presented by FUSE Productions at 1:30, 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $6.
