This December, Damariscotta’s Lincoln Theater will present four free family films on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.
The program will begin Saturday, Dec. 8, with the 1947 classic “Miracle on 34th Street” starring Natalie Wood and Oscar winner Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle, who appears to be laboring under the delusion that he’s the genuine Saint Nick.
Next up, on Saturday, Dec. 15, is “The Polar Express” (G). The movie tells the story of Billy (Hayden McFarland), who longs to believe in Santa Claus but finds it quite difficult until a mysterious train visits him in the middle of the night.
On Saturday Dec. 22 will be “A Christmas Story” (PG). Set in the 1940’s, nine-year-old Ralphie wants one thing for Christmas — an official Red Ryder BB rifle. When his mother, teacher, and even Santa tells him “You’ll shoot your eye out,” Ralph fears that he’ll never get the BB gun, but there may be a surprise in store for him.
And just after Christmas, on Saturday, Dec. 29, will be a showing of “Home Alone” (PG), a highly successful and beloved family comedy about a young boy named Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for France for the holidays.
