Of all the great holiday movies, "White Christmas" is the one that gets me in the gut every time. Bing Crosby's blue eyes. Rosemary Clooney's impossibly velvet voice. Danny Kaye's physical comedy. And those Irving Berlin songs - my own sister and I can break in to a chorus of "Sisters" on a dime.

The plot: Two pairs of singers wind up in Vermont for Christmas to help out an old friend. Singing, zany misunderstandings, waist-nipping costumes and, yes, romance ensue.

This is the final installment in the Gateway's holiday film series. It's a thrill to see these movies on the big screen. And your admission is free with a suggested toy donation to benefit The Open Shelter.
