Free Christmas show at local theater


BENNINGTON >> Bennington Cinemas and The Bank of Bennington along with WBTN 1370 AM, Carbone Auto Plaza, Brown Computer Solutions, The Pharmacy, Big Boys Toys and The Bakkerij Krijnan are sponsoring a FREE Christmas Show for children and their families on Saturday, Dec. 19.

"Frozen", rated PG, is an animated tale about two sisters, Anna and Elsa, and their epic journey to save their kingdom.

"The Christmas Candle", rated PG, is a timeless holiday film for the entire family. Legend has it every twenty-five years an angel visits the village candle maker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights the Christmas Candle will receive a miracle.

Both films will be offered at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 19 and everyone can choose which film they want to see.

Admission is free, but tickets must be obtained in advance from the following local merchants: WBTN 1370 AM, Bank of Bennington, Carbone Auto Plaza (all locations), Brown Computer Solutions, The Pharmacy, Bakkerij Krijnan, and Big Boys Toys.

A total of 500 tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Santa will be on hand at the Bennington Cinemas when the doors open at 9 a.m., and he encourages parents to bring their cameras. Parents are certainly welcome to attend the films with their children, or may drop them off and pick them up afterwards.

Everyone who attends the movie is asked to please bring a non-perishable food item for collection by the Kitchen Cupboard in Bennington, VT for the distribution to needy families in the area.

Those who do not plan to attend a movie, but might wish to donate food items, may do so anytime between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 19.
