Sacramento’s Crest Theatre (1013 K St.) will show three holiday movies during Christmas week.

At 2 p.m. Dec. 21, the Crest will screen “The Muppet Christmas Carol,” a 1992 film starring Michael Caine as Scrooge, and Kermit and Miss Piggy as Bob and Emily Cratchit. The screening will feature a live appearance by Santa Claus.

At 7:30 p.m. the next night, a furry Christmas gift multiplies rapidly in “Gremlins.” At 7:30 p.m. Dec. 23, young Ralphie will try not to shoot out his eye in “A Christmas Story.” “Gremlins” and “Christmas Story” will be shown in 35 millimeter.

Tickets for each film are $9.50 for adults, $7.50 children 11 and younger. Patrons 21 and older who attend the Dec. 22 and Dec. 23 movies can get $1 off a beer at nearby Mother restaurant by showing their tickets.
