‘White Christmas’ back on big screen

Moviegoers can get a dose of holiday nostalgia on Sunday and Wednesday at the Denton Cinemark 14.

The local cinema joins the chain in screening holiday-themed favorites during its ongoing Cinemark Classic Series.

White Christmas, the 1954 musical starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen, screens at 2 p.m. Sunday and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday at the multiplex, 2825 Wind River Lane.

White Christmas is the story of a successful song-and-dance duo, Bob Wallace (Crosby) and Phil Davis (Kaye), who fall for performing sisters Betty and Judy Haynes (Clooney and Ellen, respectively). As love blossoms, the performers decide to put their talents to use reviving a flagging Vermont inn owned and run by their former Army general. The family musical includes classic holiday songs. Not rated, 120 minutes.

Matinee tickets cost $6.50 for adults, children and seniors. Twilight tickets cost $8.50 for adults, $6.50 for children and seniors. To buy tickets online, visit www.cinemark.com.

Coming up on Dec. 8 and 11: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
