White Christmas Screening This Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

“I wanna wash my hands, my face, my hair with snow!”

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well at The Hi-Pointe Theater here in St. Louis. It”S A Wonderful Life played last weekend to a nearly-sold out crowd – and that’s a big theater!

This Saturday, December 16th at 10:00am, head over to the Hi-Pointe for a White Christmas

White Christmas was made in 1954 (exactly 20 years before Black Christmas!) and was directed by Michael Curtiz. Bing Crosby teamed up with madcap funny man Danny Kaye and partnering with those two show biz pros as sisters were Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. One of the most popular films of 1954, White Christmas opens and closes with the title song, while in between it’s filled with one great musical number after another. Crosby and Kaye play entertainers who went through W.W.II together and decide to host a fundraising

See All of Gwen Stefani's Amazingly Festive Christmas Special Looks!
Gwen Stefani is officially the new queen of Christmas!

The 48-year-old singer wowed fans with her NBC special, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, on Tuesday night, but it wasn't just her festive tunes and cute interstitials that made the show worth tuning in to (not that we were upset about Blake Shelton holding up mistletoe or an appearance by "Young Gwen"). She absolutely slay-belled the fashion game with ten amazing performance outfits.

The No Doubt frontwoman kicked off the show as our perfect present, shimmying to the classic "Jingle Bells" in a candy cane-inspired silver-and-red sequined leotard topped with a red bow.

Not only did "When I Was a Little Girl" make us weep, Stefani's mom also cried when her daughter performed it at the taping of the Christmas special. For the nostalgia-ridden ditty, the mom of three opted for a silver short-sleeved high-low dress with a full tulle skirt.

31 Facts You Didn't Know About Christmas

31 Facts You Didn't Know About Christmas
Tis the season to be...well informed. We all love Christmas, but how much do any of us actually know about why Christmas is the way it is? Here are 31 facts about Christmas trees, Santa Claus, and Rudolph that you (probably) didn’t know. Smarten up! 1. Christmas supposedly marks the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25. But there is no mention of December 25 in the Bible and most historians actually believe he was born in the spring. 2. December 25 was probably chosen because it coincided with the ancient pagan festival Saturnalia, which celebrated the agricultural god Saturn with partying, gambling, and gift-giving. 3. Many of the popular Christmas traditions today found their roots in Saturnalia: Branches from evergreen trees were used during winter solstice as a reminder of the green plants that would grow in spring when the sun gods grew strong. 4. These evergreen branches became the foundation of our Christmas tree. Germans are thought

It’S A Wonderful Life Saturday Morning December 8th at The Hi-Pointe

It’S A Wonderful Life plays on the big screen at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend. It’s Saturday, December 8th at 10:00am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. Admission is only $5. White Christmas screens there at 10:00am on December 15th and Die Hard at midnight December 23rd.

“Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?”

It wasn’t until the 1980s when It’S A Wonderful Life became the perennial holiday favorite it’s known as today. The ultimate feel-good classic from director Frank Capra was a box-office disappointment when it was initially released in 1946. Due to a clerical error in 1974, the film went into public domain and was then shown on every low-rent local access channel in varying degrees of quality for years and was released

An A-z of Festive Film

If you thought you’d seen the last of Roobla’s alphabetical rundowns with our Halloween effort, think again. With Christmas drawing ever closer, we couldn’t let the big one pass without the A-Z film treatment, so here we go…

A is for Alastair Sim. His performance in the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol still remains the definitive portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge.

B is for Bruce Willis. You can even get Die Hard festive jumpers now – ho-ho-ho.

C is for Channel 5. This lot love to start early with the Yuletide flicks; in fact I’m sure I saw one during August Bank Holiday.

D is for Disney. From Snow White to Frozen, they’ve made family entertainment into an art form, especially at this time of year..

E is for elves. Played by Dudley Moore and Will Ferrell amongst others, they’ve served Santa well over the years.

NYC Weekend Watch: Goth(ic), Maurice Pialat, William Wyler & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

The Best Holiday TV Episodes of the 21st Century, Ranked

The Best Holiday TV Episodes of the 21st Century, Ranked
Holiday episodes are rarely a show’s best, but they’re often the most enduring. CBS still airs a colorized version of the “I Love Lucy” Christmas episode, repackaged as a perennial special, 60 years later. The image of The Fonz eating out of a can, alone on Christmas Eve, is probably one of the best-remembered scenes from “Happy Days.” And “The West Wing’s” 1999 episode “In Excelsis Deo” not only won an Emmy, but its takes on homeless veterans and hate crimes are just as relevant today, nearly two decades later. And of course, it was a Christmas episode that launched the longest-running scripted series in primetime, “The Simpsons,” all the way back in 1989.

As the networks more wholeheartedly embrace the holidays as a marketing tool, there has been an explosion in Christmas-themed movies and specials in recent years. But there’s still something special about celebrating the holidays with

Reba McEntire Takes Over Cma Country Christmas Hosting Duties: Here's How She Kept It Country

Reba McEntire Takes Over Cma Country Christmas Hosting Duties: Here's How She Kept It Country
Sure, all the performers are glammed up and a 25-piece orchestra brings a big band sound, but new host Reba McEntire still manages to keep a down-home feel to the eighth annual Cma Country Christmas special, which airs Monday evening on ABC.

Gone are the Broadway-style dance numbers and quirky cameos (see: Miss Piggy, circa 2011) of the previous seven shows, which Jennifer Nettles hosted. And gone are the artists from other genres – Andra Day, Mary J. Blige, Steven Tyler, John Legend, and Sarah McLachlan, just to name a few – that have filled out previous lineups.

Home Alone Saturday Morning December 2nd at The Hi-Pointe

Keep the change you filthy animal”

Home Alone plays on the big screen at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend. It’s Saturday, December 2nd at 10:00am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. Admission is only $5. Other Christmas films in December are It’S A Wonderful Life December 9th at 10:00am, White Christmas December 16th at 10:00am 12/17 and Die Hard at Midnight December 23rd.

The 1990 comedy smash was John Hughes’ last significant contribution to pop culture. Hughes’s script was his usual dose of upper/middle-class discomfort combined with a Rube Goldberg meets Ferris Bueller selection of traps and low-brow cunning that held together better than a movie set at Christmas had any right to. And its young hero — the courageous home commando Kevin McAllister, played with gusto by the subsequently doomed Macaulay Culkin, is hilarious in his mission to protect his
