PELHAM, N. Y. -- Pelham's Picture House celebrates the holiday season Sunday, Dec. 11, with the Nutcracker Magical Matinee, a screening of the classic ballet that also includes a live dance performance and costumed ballerinas.
Open to people of all ages, the event features the cinematic version of the New York City Ballet's classic production of "The Nutcracker," a holiday story about a young girl's dream coming to life. It all starts at 3 p.m. Dec. 11 at The Picture House, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham.
The movie will be presented in the Main Hall right after a performance by youth members of Ballet Arts' dance program featuring scenes from "The Nutcracker Act II." Costumed ballerinas will also greet guests, officials said.
The film features an all-star cast from New York City Ballet, including Darci Kistler and Damian Woetzel, and a cameo appearance by a young McCauley Culkin as the Nutcracker Prince. Kevin Kline narrates the story.
This film version of "The Nutcracker" is the same production performed by New York City Ballet each December at Lincoln Center. Tickets for The Nutcracker Magical Matinee are priced at $20 for general admission, $16 for members and $10 for children.
