Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center will host three special screenings of holiday classics this December.
On Sunday, December 13th at 1:00 p.m.; Memorial Funeral Home will sponsor a free movie screening of Elf.
During the holiday season – and this year in particular – more families than ever are seeking help from local soup kitchens and food pantries. To help defray operating costs and stock the shelves at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center food pantry in Newport, Memorial Funeral Home and the Edenbach family are sponsoring a free, family-friendly holiday movie. Admission requires simply a food donation. This marks the eighth year this holiday screening event will be held.
Tickets are free, but admission does require a food donation. More Information About This Event
On Sunday, December 20th at 12:55 p.m.; experience an encore presentation of The Bolshoi version of The Nutcracker. This beloved holiday classic will enchant the whole family with its fairytale setting and Tchaikovsky’s timeless score. The Bolshoi’s version of The Nutcracker has a unique and beautiful sense of romance and philosophy, danced by the heroic Denis Rodkin as the courageous Prince and the magical Anna Nikulina as Marie. (THE NUTCRACKER was recorded live on December 21, 2014)
