Advent and Christmas Movies

“Coffee Shop”

A holiday love story of a woman struggling to keep her dream coffee shop open while simultaneously grappling with a nuisance of a visiting out-of-towner who questions the ways she approaches both business and life. As a curious bond between the two grows stronger, she begins to fight for her cafe.

“12 Dogs of Christmas”

For those looking to jumpstart their holiday cheer. Set during the Great Depression, Emma lives in a town run by a stuffy mayor who has passed a law to ban all dogs. Recognizing the joy these furry friends bring, she teams up with a local dog sanctuary to overturn this law.

Lights, Camera … 

Before beginning your exclusive showing, silence all technology for the night so you can truly be present for your family. The minutes you spend with one another are precious and you’ll find they move much too quickly. Show them that you enjoy spending quality time together and that it is a priority. Pop some popcorn, cook up some rich, creamy stovetop hot chocolate and cozy up on the couch with the ones you love. Take your time and watch a movie or two. The shoveling can wait. The snow will still be there tomorrow.
