Meet Me in St. Louis
“Meet Me in St. Louis” is a classic MCM comedy featuring Judy Garland. A disarmingly sweet musical led by outstanding performances from Judy as well as Margaret O'Brien, Meet Me in St. Louis is a treat for all ages. Some of the most popular songs from the film include “The Boy Next Door”, “The Trolley Song”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. Run time is 1 hour 53 minutes and is rated G.
The Phantom of the Opera
In this black and white silent horror classic from 1925, a horribly disfigured recluse takes opera singer Christine, the object of his affection, prisoner. Accompanied by an original score on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, this eerie delight is sure to kick off the Halloween season in the perfect setting – a historic movie palace! Run time is 1 hour 19 minutes and is not rated as it precedes the MPAA film rating system.
It’s a Wonderful Life
Released in 1946 and starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a bittersweet comedy/drama about George Bailey, a compassionate but debt-ridden manager of a bank in typical small-town America, and the angel that helps him realize his importance in the world. Run time is 2 hours and 15 minutes and is rated PG.
