Cinema214: White Christmas (NR, 120 min.) – 7 pm

Singers Bob Wallace and Phil Davis join sister act Betty and Judy Haynes to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont.  There, they run into Gen. Waverly, the boys' commander in World War II, who, they learn, is having financial difficulties; his quaint country inn is failing.  So what's the foursome to do but plan a yuletide miracle: a fun-filled musical extravaganza that's sure to put Waverly and his business in the black!  Join us and get into the holiday spirit!  Refreshments will be served.  Sponsored by Friends of the Library
