Circle Cinema has announced the return of the sing-along songs “White Christmas” with seven screenings over two weekends in December.

Designed as a holiday treat, the Sing Along songs feature Irving Berlin’s classic 1954 musical “White Christmas” starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney with onscreen song lyrics and public participation strongly encouraged.

Tickets cost $ 15 for Circle Cinema members, $ 20 for non-members, and $ 10 for children 12 and under. All tickets include pre- and post-show entertainment, singing props, free popcorn, access to a special hot chocolate bar, and ‘White Christmas’ photo ops in the lobby. Tickets are available on or in person at the Circle Cinema box office, 10 S. Lewis Ave. A press release says tickets will be sold in advance.

The songs to be sung take place at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday December 11 7 p.m. Sunday December 12, 7 p.m. Friday December 17, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday December 18 and 2 p.m. Sunday December 17. 19.

All screenings will be hosted by Jody Jill McIntyre, Circle Cinema board member and lifelong “White Christmas” fan. She will open each screening with anecdotes about the film and a prize. She will also show attendees when to use the singing props included with each ticket.

After the film, members of the American Theater Organ Society Sooner State Chapter will perform Christmas carols on Circle’s restored theater organ in 1928.
