Community Invited to Holiday Film White Christmas
By Space Coast Daily // December 9, 2014
A short holiday special will be shown
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen star in the 1954 Michael Curtiz film, White Christmas, in which a successful song-and-dance duo become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general.
On Friday, December 19 from 12 noon until 3 p.m., the community is invited to watch the classic holiday movie and enjoy free appetizers and desserts.
With music by legendary composer and lyricist Irving Berlin, the movie includes such memorable songs as “Count Your Blessings,” “Snow,” and the iconic, “White Christmas.”
And few can forget the Bing and Danny pantomime of “Sisters,” where the two performers enjoy a farcical song and dance complete with blue ostrich feather fans.
A short holiday special with Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby will also be shown as a bonus feature.
One Senior Place is located at 8085 Spyglass Hill Road in Viera. Admission is free and an RSVP is requested by calling (321) 751-6771.
For One Senior Place Director, Kathi Ridner, the film is a personal favorite. “This movie has everything,” said Ridner.
“Great songs, great stars and wonderful dance numbers. You feel certain everything will turn out just fine in the end, and of course, it does. We hope a lot of folks come by for a fun afternoon with us.”
The holiday film event is just one of dozens of events presented annually by One Senior Place, a marketplace for resources and provider of information, advice, care and on-site services for seniors and their families.
