With heartwarming music and lyrics from Irving Berlin, the 1954 classic White Christmas centers around Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, two World War II pals who have formed a successful song-and-dance duo. When they fall for two musically inclined sisters (Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney), they follow the siblings to a Vermont ski lodge coincidentally owned by their former commander. Things aren’t as merry as they seem, however, for the lodge is in danger of closing because of a lack of snow. In an attempt to save the wintertime paradise, the characters all band together to perform a nationally televised broadcast of Bob and Phil’s latest show. With iconic musical numbers such as the breezy “Sisters” and the wildly popular title track, White Christmas enraptures the audience with the magic of holiday miracles and shared disdain of weathermen everywhere.<p>
"Ornate" and "sweeping" only begin to describe the Crest Theatre, whose rich history extends back to 1912, when it was opened as a vaudeville house. Within its gargantuan auditorium, plush seats perch in subtly curved rows while elaborate lights and a sea-blue ceiling wash the space in ethereal hues. Moviegoers settle into the elegant confines to take in both new and classic films, reading the subtitles in a whisper to stuffed animals that forgot their glasses. Out in the lobby, a richly patterned carpet and bronzed floral motif cover the sprawling space as visitors belly up to the bar and snack on high-quality goodies.
