    "Wry, funny (with some zingers that will stay with you long after the film is over), and closely observed, The Holdovers is my kind of Christmas film.” – Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine

    “Roman Holiday” - Classic Film Series - (1953; NR; 1 hour, 59 minutes) - Overwhelmed by her suffocating schedule, touring European princess Ann (Audrey Hepburn) takes off for a night while in Rome.

At work the next morning, Joe finds out Ann's regal identity and bets his editor he can get exclusive interview with her, but romance soon gets in the way. Two shows only at 2 p.m.: Thursday, Dec. 14 and Saturday, Dec. 16.
