In just over a month, downtown Seymour will experience a throwback to the 1950s and 1960s as a full day of mornings will be shown on the big screen at the Owen Theater on the south side of the square.
Harold Owen won’t be using the projector, but all the amenities of his cozy place will be available – such as full concessions, including hot popcorn – throughout the day on Saturday, November 20.
Best of all, each of the five family movies that air in the morning and afternoon is free.
Free entry is offered to all ages for all shows; However, children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, noted officials from the Seymour Area Arts Council, which owns the historic Owen Theater.
Free movies start at 8 a.m.
The event is being organized in conjunction with the Town of Seymour’s “Shop Seymour This Christmas” celebration which kicks off on November 20th.
All of the movies played at the Owen have a Christmas theme.
The film program includes:
• 8h00 – “The Muppet Christmas Carol”, released in 1992, running time of 1 hour 25 minutes.
• 9.45am – “The Polar Express”, released in 2004, duration 1 hour, 40 minutes.
