Inspirational Movie Night, Wednesday

January 10th

6:30 pm


The movie for January is Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas).  Yes, we're going to watch a Christmas movie in January.  We'd planned it for our December movie, but the disc was bad.  It's such a good movie, though, that it was chosen for January.   As French, Scottish, and German soldiers prepare to open their presents on Christmas Eve 1914, a momentous event occurs that changes the destinies of four people: an Anglican priest, a French lieutenant, a world-class tenor and his soprano lover. Come and enjoy popcorn and inspiration.

Location: The theatre at Affinity Living Community: 860 Baseline Rd - across from King Soopers on Route 7 at Highway 287.  Call Pat Brazee at 303-880-9896 to get in.
