The Sandusky State Theatre will be the site of a weekend Christmas film festival, with admission just $1 to see them on the big screen, says the theater's executive director, Thomas Kazmierczak.

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas," starring Jim Carrey and based on a Dr. Seuss classic, , will show at 7:30 p.m. Friday and will encore at 2 p.m. Saturday. At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, the theater will show "Christmas Vacation," starring Chevy Chase.

The festival continues with at 2 p.m. Sunday "A Christmas Story, the Christmas classic featuring a little boy's wish for a Red Ryder BB gun.

Kazmierczak also wants to remind everyone about the Lowes Christmas Spectacular, a live show featuring the Lowe family that will play one night only on Tuesday. 

"They're pulling out all the stops," Kazmierczak said. "It's a mix of the Rockettes, Donny and Marie, Lawrence Welk, all modern day." More details on the website.

Whoa, the Santa nazis and atheists ain't gonna like that. The man driving by and flipping the State Theatre the bird will be Duhast, be forewarned.


You know, for all the Santa nazis and atheists who demand respect for their views (which, in fairness, they deserve), it sure seems some of them have very little respect for anybody else's (which is just as deserved)!

Look, Christmas is celebrated by many as a religious holiday, and by many others as a secular holiday. Some don't celebrate at all. Why should anybody in any of those groups give a dam* what anybody else does as long as they're doing their own thing, eh?

Good for The State Theatre. Sounds like a fun event no matter how you clebrate Christmas!


What a lovely way, Goofus, to start the comments
about a nice little positive article about Christmas festivities.
Frohe Weihnachten, Renmist



Yeah!!! It's good to see people embracing Christmas and the holiday spirit!!


This is amazing!! Thanks so much to all that made it happen! I can't think of ANYWHERE a family of 5 can go for such little money and such a hearwarming time! Our children have seen these movies before of course but not on the big screen! There is nothing like a family night out you can actually afford!!
