Starting on Friday December 11 and running through December 24, the Music Box will show the 1946 classic “It’s A Wonderful Life” starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. The drive-in will also screen the 1953 holiday favorite “White Christmas” staring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney.
Directed by Frank Capra “It’s A Wonderful Life” tells the story of George Bailey, who as he contemplates taking his own life, is visited by an angel named Clarence (Henry Travers) who takes him on a journey to show George what life would have been like if he’d never been born.
“White Christmas” is the Technicolor musical comedy where sisters (Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen) join two soldiers (Bing Crosby, Danny) in putting on a show for troops at a Vermont lodge.
The movies will be shown at Chi-Town Movies Drive-In located at 2343 S Throop Street. According to the Music Box “drive-in admittance begins 30 minutes prior to the film’s listed start time.”
