A good day for movies (Dec. 1 and 8)

November 30, 2007

If the weather tomorrow turns out as bad as predicted, it’ll be a great day to be in a nice, warm theater with nice, warm popcorn. Somehow the local theaters seem to have anticipated this, as at least three of them have special freebie deals coming up. The first is Wehrenberg Theaters, which has a Cans Film Festival tomorrow (bring five canned goods and get a pass for a pre-5 p.m. showing). The second is the Tivoli, which will be showing a 45-minute Winnie the Pooh movie at noon as part of The Loop’s Holiday Walk. Admission is one canned good. OK, I know these two are technically NOT free, but you can get some pretty inexpensive canned goods … . 🙂 (While you’re in The Loop, check out a cool photography exhibit at the Star Clipper comics store.)

The other theater is the Roberts Orpheum downtown at 9th and St. Charles, where there are four totally free films showing tomorrow and Saturday, Dec. 8. Tomorrow’s lineup: Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus at 4 p.m. and Gremlins at 7 p.m. Next weekend’s: Miracle on 34th Street at 4 p.m. and A Christmas Story at 7 p.m. Seating starts 30 minutes prior, and it’s first-come, first-seated. If you’re not familiar with the Roberts Orpheum, you’re in for a treat — it’s just the type of vintage-feel theater where these classic movies should be shown.
