Holiday Classic Movies in the Bay Area

I just went online to look for movie theatres that would show classic holiday movies. Not that I won't see Fred Claus, Enchanted or Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, but there's a reason why classics are classics. Sadly enough, no movie theatre shows Miracle on 34th Street or White Christmas or even A Charlie Brown Christmas, but there's good news. The Lafayette's Town Hall Theatre presents a stage version of Miracle on 34th Street and The Orpheum in Oakland presents a stage version of Irving Berlin's White Christmas. I'll be on the lookout for other live holiday shows. In the list of other classic movies (not necessarily holiday-related), I've found: - The Wizard of Oz (1939) at the Parkway Speakeasy Theatre on December 6 at 9.15 pm (what an oddly late start time for such a long family movie) - Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971 Gene Wilder film) at El Cerrito Speakeasy Theatre on December 16 at 2pm - Charlie Chaplin movies and shorts at the Castro Theatre (dates and times vary) - Labyrinth at the Red Vic Movie House and at the Parkway Speakeasy Theatre
