It's going to be a great weekend to get in the Christmas spirit with some classic holiday movies. The Legacy Theatre is showing two traditional films that have been enjoyed for generations. On Friday, you can experience all the warm feelings with the 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama, It's a Wonderful Life. Follow George Bailey on his arduous journey, taking stock of his life and finally learning that no man is a failure who has friends. On Saturday, watch Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen sing and dance through the wonderful scenes of Irving Berlin's White Christmas, a 1954 American musical, then sing along with that iconic final song. The Legacy is the perfect place to enjoy these films. Just like in the good old days, you enter the theater to the sounds of Christmas music and the smell of popcorn in the air, settle into your seat, then the red velvet curtains part and glorious holiday magic begins. Tickets are $10 at the door or just $5 if you donate a nonperishable food item, so take the whole family to enjoy these timeless classics on the grand screen at The Legacy Theatre.
