You just never know what’s going to happen at St. Monica. Take Thursday night. The temperature was hovering in the mid-60s, and the sky was dotted with stars—yet snow was falling in the Grand Pavilion. That’s when the Film Club presented the holiday classic, White Christmas. The movie was released over 60 years ago, but its timeless score never seems out-of-date. In fact, Bing Crosby wasn’t the only one singing the melody on Thursday—the evening ended with everyone joining in with Father David Guffey, CSC, to pay homage to Irving Berlin’s nostalgic masterpiece.
2019 will soon be here as will the Film Club’s special January event called “Go to the Movies Night.” That’s the evening when the Film Club discusses a movie that’s then in local theaters. Those planning to attend the Film Club in January are asked to see Stan & Ollie, a biopic about the famous comedy duo, Laurel and Hardy. The film hits theaters December 28 about three weeks before the Film Club’s Jan. 17 event.
