Santa, Free Holiday Movie and Lord's Cupboard Benefit: Once again this holiday season, KMCD/Classic 96 will team with Jefferson County Farm Bureau and the Orpheum Theater to present its Annual Free Holiday Movie on Saturday December 3rd. Over the last 15 years, thousands of pounds of food have been collected to benefit The Lords Cupboard through the KMCD/Classic 96 free holiday movie. This year’s feature will be one of the year’s biggest hit, the Disney Classic “Finding Dory”.
"Finding Dory" is the follow up to the record breaking “Finding Nemo” and reunites the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way.
Parents are encouraged bring a non perishable food item to exchange for a ticket to the show. Santa will arrive at the Orpheum at 9 am to greet children with a treat, there will be a letter writing station for Christmas Letters, a craft area and a silent auction which will benefit The Lord’s Cupboard. The first showing of “Finding Dory” starts at 10, a second show will follow at 12. This will be a great opportunity for some parents to maybe get a little holiday shopping in as this will also coincide with the Shop and Be Merry promotion. All Donations will benefit the Lords Cupboard of Jefferson County.
When: December 3, 2016
Time: Santa: 9:00am, Dori 10:00am and 12:00pm
Where: Orpheum Theater
