Night Before Christmas At Circa ’21

“Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” But wait. A mouse is stirring – because Santa missed his house last year.

Before you can say “Merry Christmas,” we’re off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf and a spunky little girl who visit the North Pole and just won’t take no for an answer.

Don’t miss this joyful tribute to the holiday season!

Showing November 24 – December 23, 2023

Think you know your music?
If you know what song contains these lyrics, you would probably love Rock Star Bingo!
“And she’s watching him with those eyes,
And she’s loving him with that body, I just know it,
Yeah ‘n’ he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night.”
What is Rock Star Bingo?
Just like “regular” bingo, but we replaced bingo numbers, like “B16”, with parts of songs. If you know the song title (no phones, devices or apps – basically no cheating), then place a bingo chip on that square. Get 5 squares in a row and you’re a winner!!
It’s the most fun you will ever have playing bingo!
