Geelong seniors can enjoy a free screening of a classic Christmas movie next week.
Kings Funerals will screen White Christmas to delight its audience with one of Hollywood’s most-popular festive-season movies.
The 1954 musical romance comedy features legendary stars Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen in some of their best-known roles.
The four appear as a group of singers scheduled to perform a Christmas show in the USA’s rural Vermont.
After arriving they run into the former World War II commander of Crosby’s and Kaye’s characters, who reveales to them his financial difficulties and failing country inn.
The four performers rally to the commander’s cause, planning a musical extravaganza to put his venue back in the black.
Along the way the foursome performs some of composer Irving Berlin’s greatest movie songs, including The Old Man, The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing and, of course, White Christmas.
The movie famously concludes with the four lead characters pairing off and declaring their love for each other as a background of falling snow is revealed.
“May your days be merry and bright, and may all of your Christmases be white,” sings all on screen as glasses are raised in a finale toast.
The movie screens from 9am to 11am next Wedesday, followed by morning tea, at Kings Funerals, 130 Bellarine Hwy, Newcomb.
