West Seattle holidays: Help The Admiral choose a movie

Admiral Theater boss Dinah Brein says, “It’s that time again……time to decide the annual Free Admiral Theater Xmas Movie. We’ve already shown Elf, A Christmas Story and Jim Carrey’s A Christmas Carol. We want something both kid friendly and adult friendly.” Got any suggestions? E-mail her at admiraltheater@gmail.com. They’ll also take up a collection for charity that night, too; the movie will be screened one night the week before Christmas.

    The Muppet Christmas Carol with Michael Caine. It’s great and Paul Williams music is really good.


    White Christmas!!

    Nothing says the holidays like Vera Ellen’s 22″ waist.

    I always vote for “Christmas Vacation.” Not just the best holiday movie, but one of my favorites of all time.

    I love the Polar Express with Hot Coco idea! Or easily one of the Muppet Christmas movies (Christmas Carol or Emit Otter… I am not ashamed to admit I still get teary eyed at the end of Muppet Christmas Carol, that song is so sweet.

      Pleasure has nothing to do with it. Just a sponge for knowledge, whether necessary or not!

    Muppets Christmas Carol, or Emitt Otter. Christmas Vacation is great but you see it all over the place (thought it would be great seeing it in the theater) The other two are a little harder to find, especially this time of year.

    I second “Meet Me In St. Louis” as a worthy alternative to the obvious Christmas movies that get suggested year after year after year.

    I have seen Christmas Vacation dozens of times but can’t get tired of the slapstick. Christmas Vacation please!
