Coronado Theatre to Hold Holiday Cinema on Dec. 14

The free "Coronado Cinema Series presents Holiday Movie Festival" features three films. You can stay for just one movie or all three.

- A 10-minute "Our City, Our Story" profile by Rockford filmmaker Pablo Korona about Matt Gibbons, who rescued projectors from the trash before the Coronado reopened in 2001 after an $18.5 million renovation.

- 1:00pm, "Polar Express," a 2004 animated film about a doubting boy who boards a magical train on Christmas Eve that's headed to Santa Claus' home.

- 3:00pm, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," an animated 1966 film.

- 4:00pm,"It's a Wonderful Life," a 1946 Jimmy Stewart movie about an angel helping a frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he'd never been born.

The "Our City, Our Story" film may be shown again before the 4:00pm show. And an organist will play between shows.
