Bennington Cinemas offer free Christmas show
BENNINGTON — Bennington Cinemas will be offering a free Christmas show for children and their families on Saturday, Dec. 14.
Two films will be shown. "The Star," rated PG, is an animated tale about a donkey, a sheep, a dove and some camels following the star on the adventure of their dreams. They become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told — the first Christmas.
"The Santa Clause," rated PG, starring Tim Allen, is a magical hit comedy that is wonderful for the entire family.
Both films will be offered at 10:15 am on Saturday, December 14th and everyone can choose which film they want to see.
Admission is free, but tickets must be obtained in advance from the following local supporting merchants: WBTN 1370 AM, Bank of Bennington, Loomis Auto, The Pharmacy, Carbone Honda, Whitman's Feed Store, Madison Brewing Co., Gamers Grotto, Earls Service Center or 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 parents are encouraged to bring their cameras. Parents are 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 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. 14.
Bennington Cinemas is located at 125 Phyllis Lane in Bennington.
