Holiday Classics returns to Gateway Film Center this December

Now in its eleventh year.

‘Tis the season to see the classics as they were meant to be seen—on the big screen with friends and family. Reconnect with iconic stories from our curated collection of Hollywood’s Golden Age alongside modern favorites, many presented on 35mm film. Whether starting a new tradition or continuing an old favorite, we are happy to host you and your loved ones this holiday season.

“But the main thing is … that we’re all going to be together, just like we’ve always been.”

—Judy Garland as Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
