(113 min) In the year leading up to the 1904 St Louis World’s Fair, the four Smith daughters learn lessons of life and love, even as they prepare for a reluctant move to New York. With Judy Garland and Mary Astor, and directed by Vincente Minnelli. The film debuted the hits “The Trolley Song” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.

Join us one Saturday each month (1pm and 7pm) as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News-Gazette screenings, and film critic Chuck Koplinski leads discussions after all of our evening screenings. NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
