Plaza Theatre Kendle Kidd Performance Hall
Circle content

That rare Christmas movie that won Academy Awards, this delightful Christmas classic took home two Oscars for its writers and another for Edmund Gwenn’s wonderful — and convincing — performance as Kris Kringle, a man who ends up in court to prove his existence. Kris has stepped in at the last minute for a drunken Santa during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, then becomes the store’s full-time Santa. He works miracles around him with two lonely souls, Maureen O’Hara as the store’s event director and John Payne as a bachelor lawyer, and a charming young Natalie Wood as O’Hara’s skeptical daughter.

Note: Ken Fedorick will play holiday music on the Plaza Theatre’s 88-year-old Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ from 3-3:30 p.m.
