Come enjoy a holiday classic, "The Bishop's Wife", starring Cary Grant, David Niven, and Loretta Young (1947 B&W). Christmas bells are ringing, but Bishop Henry Brougham is missing the spirit as he desperately tries to raise funds for a new cathedral to the point of neglecting his wife. Only divine intervention can salvage the marriage. This witty and sentimental film will delight any audience.

Sit back and enjoy a modern holiday classic, "A Christmas Story" starring Darren McGavin. (1983) This film is both heartwarming and side splitting as nine-year-old Ralphie tries to convince his parents that an air rifle would be the perfect Christmas gift from Santa only to hear the refrain, "You'll shoot your eye out!"

What holiday season would be complete without an overgrown lizard from prehistoric times stomping on a city? This remake of "Godzilla" is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of mayhem and destruction, but what would you expect from a mad monster!
