Yet once again, Frederick's cinema venues are missing out on
special double feature revival screenings of these holiday classics.
According to the theater roster for the special one-day cinematic event (via Fathom Events' website), cinemas in the Frederick area are not participating in this special revival screening. Neither the area's sixteen-plex eyesore (Regal Cinemas), nor Frederick's iconic twinplex (MDL Holiday Cinemas)*, nor Frederick's "crown jewel" (The Weinberg Center For The Arts)* are participating in this classic Holiday film event.
In my view, I think that the Frederick area shouldn't miss out on this special "double feature" revival screening event of two holiday classics. Both films (A Christmas Carol and Christmas In Connecticut) should be shown the way they were meant to be seen, on the big screen (in the Frederick area).
*NOTE: MDL Holiday Cinemas and The Weinberg Center For The Arts may not be able to show the one-day double feature revival screening of A Christmas Carol and Christmas In Connecticut due to licensing costs and/or availability of the NCM Fathom system. It would be nice if the Frederick area had a "revival house" (or repertory) cinema venue.
If anyone from Hood College's Campus Activities Board (CAB) is reading At The Matinee, you could obtain the nontheatrical rights to one of the two classic films for possible screenings during the holiday season. You could add some life to your "blockbuster movie showcase" series by offering revival screenings of classic films! Just a suggestion.
