PALMDALE – The Palmdale Playhouse will host a fun-filled evening that will feature a visit from St. Nick and a well-loved Christmas movie with a presentation of “Santa and Movie” this Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 & 8 at 4:30 and 7:30 pm.
Santa will be on hand to greet guests of all ages in the decorated Playhouse lobby before guests are seating inside the auditorium for a viewing of the beloved classic, “A Christmas Story.”
“Bring your family and start a new holiday tradition with Santa And A Movie,” said Palmdale Playhouse Theatre Operations Coordinator Debbie Barrientes. “This is a perfect time to see Santa and enjoy a classic holiday movie. You may also take home a keepsake photo with frame to remember this special occasion.”
“A Christmas Story” takes place in the town of Hohman, Indiana, a fictionalized version of film author Jean Shepherd’s hometown of Hammond, Indiana. The movie features nine-year-old Ralph “Ralphie” Parker who desires only one thing in the world for Christmas: a Red Ryder BB gun. Ralphie tries several schemes to convince his parents to get him the BB gun, but he is constantly reminded by them and others who object by saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”
Movie tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for youth 12 and under. Photos with Santa are $5. Purchase movie tickets early, seating is limited.For more information, call the Playhouse at 661/267-5684 or visit our Web site at www.cityofpalmdale.org/playhouse.
