Maynard theater hosts free classic Christmas movies

December 21, 2016 by  

The Fine Arts Theatre Place in Maynard is showing its giving spirit this season by showing several holiday movies.

Those who live in Devens and surrounding communities are likely to take advantage of this special opportunity, especially since the films are free to watch.

Steve Trumble, owner of Fine Arts Theatre Place, said this is the first annual ‘Merry Movie Classic’ series. Many people in the area have expressed their gratitude throughout the year for the theater, and so this is his way of giving back to the community.

Trumble added that people with few financial resources that want to keep these films as holiday traditions can still have fun with their families and see some Christmas classics on the big screen. He is always pleased when he sees the faces of happy children as they leave the theater, and says attendees have expressed their appreciation of the generosity.

There are 21 screenings of over nine different films. So far, two of the movies have included ‘Home Alone’ and ‘White Christmas’, while coming up are ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ and ‘Miracle on 34th Street’, among others.

‘The Polar Express’ will have four screenings on December 23 and December 24 to end the Christmas series. Trumble might consider creating flyers with more information about these screenings so people can still get into the last-minute festive spirit.
