In this Christmas classic, an old man going by the name of Kris Kringle (Edmund Gwenn) fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the chain’s main store in midtown Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.
In addition to our regular fare, Tom & Jerrys and other warm beverages will be available.
Santa hats and holiday sweaters encouraged.
Admission is $6.00 all ages.
Doors open 7:00 | showtime 7:30

If you’ve never seen this movie, forget what you’ve heard about it. If you’ve only seen it on the small screen, either on broadcast TV with commercial interruptions or on lousy Public Domain home video, erase that experience from your mind. The beauty, the humor, and the power of this classic can only be appreciated as it was originally intended—on the big screen, sitting side-by-side with friends, family, neighbors, and strangers alike. Join us at the Eureka Theater for this special holiday screening, and help us celebrate being a part of this, well, wonderful community.
Admission $6.00 all ages
Doors open 1:30 | Showtime 2:00
