Admiral Theater holiday contest: Choose the (free) movie!

The Admiral Theater invites you to help choose a free movie for the holidays. Dinah from The Admiral sends the pitch:

We would love to host a free holiday movie for our neighbors and want your suggestions! Last year we showed, the perennial favorite, A Christmas Story. Please suggest something you can’t see on TV i.e. (It’s a Wonderful Life). Maybe it’s a charming foreign Christmas film or maybe it’s Naughty Santa. The only thing we can’t do is play something that’s currently out in
the theaters. You can either e-mail me at, or fill out a slip and put it in our Christmas box at the theater and let me know what you’d like to see on our big screen! Admission is free but we ask that you bring some needed donations for our food banks! We will announce the film the first week of December and we will show the film on Saturday, December 19th at noon!

Next time you go to the movies at The Admiral, also look for their candy contest – a suggestion box of sorts where you can suggest a type of candy you’d like to see make a comeback.


  1. You should do one for families as well, but you could rake in a little dough if you screened “Bad Santa” (is that what you meant by ‘naughty’ santa?) for food donations and had the bar open, maybe with some musical entertainment as well.

  2. What’s that film where the kid licks the flagpole on a dare and it gets stuck (frozen) to the flagpole while he’s waving his arms around?
