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.

      I’m actually embarrassed to know this, but Bruce wasn’t Demi’s first husband. – TR

    “Holiday Inn” gets my vote.

  • dameDonna November 22, 2011 (8:04 am)

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

  • Fabulousem November 22, 2011 (8:31 am)

    OMG Tracy, you are cracking me up! I was going to post that if nobody else did.

    I vote for Love Actually.

  • Lovewinter November 22, 2011 (8:46 am)

    Emmet and Otter’s jugband christmas for sure!!!! It’s a Jim Henson masterpiece and the children love it!!!!

  • Thistle November 22, 2011 (8:59 am)

    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.

  • Cineaste November 22, 2011 (10:00 am)

    Excellent & enjoyable response TR.
    I would love to hear some of your other guilty pleasures, film wise.

    • WSB November 22, 2011 (10:43 am)

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

  • AJP November 22, 2011 (10:33 am)

    Muppet Christmas Carol!!!!

  • MB November 22, 2011 (11:09 am)

    I vote Home Alone or the Polar Express!! Wish I hadn’t missed A Christmas Story…best…movie…ever!

  • Dave D. November 22, 2011 (12:06 pm)

    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.

  • Foxy Diamond November 22, 2011 (2:46 pm)

    Could we p l e a s e have a late (but not too late) showing of The Hebrew Hammer??? C’mon I have to put up with freakin’ Christmas music for 2 months it’s the least you could do for the chosen peeps!


  • NorDel November 22, 2011 (3:35 pm)

    White Christmas or Holiday Inn!

    My 9 year old LOVES Bing Crosby, so those two films get our votes!

  • madison parentm November 22, 2011 (5:51 pm)

    Ok now I’m dying to know who demis first husband was off to wiki

  • Forest November 22, 2011 (6:52 pm)

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

  • Emmatt November 22, 2011 (8:05 pm)

    Miracle on 34th or white christmas.

  • Jtk November 22, 2011 (8:15 pm)

    “elf”. Will Farrell is awesome. Period.

  • Admiral November 23, 2011 (12:47 pm)

    I saw a trailer for Hebrew Hammer and cracked up. I would like to show it maybe during off times. Would ya’ll come?

  • Stu December 5, 2011 (10:55 am)

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