Night after Thanksgiving movie special
Submitted By Rena Dein
Come see Barbara Stanwyck in a holiday film classic at the Edison Theater in Niles, Fremont!
"Christmas in Connecticut" (1945, Warner Bros.) stars Stanwyck as a Martha Stewart-type newspaper writer who has misled the public into thinking she is the perfect housewife with a farm in Connecticut (when in fact she is a single woman who lives in a third story walk-up apartment and can't cook), and must try to cover her deception when her boss and a returning war hero invite themselves to her home for a traditional family Christmas. The film also stars Dennis Morgan and Sydney Greenstreet. Don't miss this truly under-rated classic.
The evening is a fundraiser for the Adopt a Family / Adopt a Senior program; Nicki Bouton is sponsoring this show. Come on down and show support!
Showtime is at 8 p.m. (or half an hour after the conclusion of the Festival of Lights Parade, whichever is later). $10 admission includes popcorn and a drink. Tickets will only be available at the door.
