The third and final Classic Christmas movie matinée, A Christmas Story, is playing at The Catlow Theater at 11 a.m. this Saturday, December 21st.
Already this month, the Catlow featured White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life in their special Classic Christmas Matinée series sponsored by Community Church of Barrington.
We’re also welcome to join the 7 p.m. Christmas Eve service at Community Church of Barrington next week, when Pastor Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque will discuss the message of the movie A Christmas Story as it relates to imagining a perfect Christmas celebration.
Tickets for the Catlow’s Classic Christmas movie matinées cost $5 and can be purchased at the door.
Also playing this week at the Catlow Theater is Dallas Buyers Club, which is getting a lot of Oscar buzz and opens at the Catlow this Friday, December 20th…

Matthew McConaughey stars in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus.
Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal.
Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts – who he once would have shunned – and established a hugely successful “buyers’ club.” Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience.
