The films we are opening this week will continue through Christmas. On Thursday, after much consideration we will open Anchorman 2. On Friday we open Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, and Saving Mr. Banks. The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug will continue through Christmas.
Saving Mr. Banks is really our Christmas movie. We originally did not make the cut, as Disney is releasing only 2,000 prints. Because of the small size of our town, we are not usually in the running until there is a 2,500-3,000 print release. We called Disney every day, told them this is the perfect film for our town, and finally just wore them down. I believe they gave us a print so they wouldn’t have to listen to us whine anymore. They will remember this, so I hope we can impress them at the box office.
Sadly we have to say goodbye to Catching Fire, and Frozen Thursday to make room for the new films.
The films that we cannot show over Christmas will run in January and February. Future Attractions include The Wolf of Wall St., Philomena. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, LEGO, The Monuments Men, American Hustle and Her. There are other films we will show, including some Academy Award favorites we might bring back for a week.
Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect. -Oren Arnold
