While none of us are really dreaming of a white Christmas (we're clearly going to be having one, whether we like it or not), we might still want to sing about it. The Music Box Theatre is hosting its 25th annual Christmas Show, complete with screenings of 'White Christmas' and Frank Capra's classic 'It's a Wonderful Life.' Jolly old St. Nick himself greets the audience and leads them in song before the movies, with the lyrics projected up on the screen so no one embarrasses themselves with the wrong words.
Tickets are $10 for a single movie, and $15 for double features. Purchase tickets in advance at the theatre box office during regular operating hours (5 p.m. to 9 :30 p.m. on weekdays and noon to midnight on weekends; cash only). You can also purchase advance tickets online.
Shows will be screened starting tonight, Friday, Dec. 19, and are shown through Christmas Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 24. Check the official web site for exact times, as they vary each day. On Dec. 22, 'Miracle on 34th Street' will be screened with an optional double feature of 'Bad Santa' immediately following.
