The Sheridan Arts Foundation announces a new holiday tradition: a Holiday Movie Marathon, a free movie day featuring heartwarming holiday and winter movies for kids (and adults) of all ages on Saturday, December 19, 2015, at the historic Sheridan Opera House.

The fun day will also include the chance to meet Elsa, Anna, and Olaf the Snowman in the Ice Castle (the Sheridan Opera House Gallery Room) for photos and hot chocolate for $5 admission. 

“Each December we’re asked by the public for family friendly programming, and this is the Sheridan Arts Foundation’s way of giving back to the community,” said Executive Director Ronnie Palamar. “We wanted to open our doors to families and anyone who loves holiday movies.”

The Sheridan Arts Foundation is the organization that owns and operates the Sheridan Opera House. The nonprofit is committed to restoring and preserving the Opera House, bringing quality entertainment to Telluride, and exposing youth to the arts to promote awareness and appreciation.

The Movie Marathon will feature several hit classic films and a full-length film in Spanish (with English subtitles). The SAF collaborated with the San Miguel Resource Center to select a family friendly movie in Spanish. Telluride’s Hispanic community is encouraged to join in on the family-friendly fun.

The Marathon kicks off from 2:30-3:30 p.m. with a double feature of the classic TV movies, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Frosty the Snowman.” Both films are rated G.



“¡ Feliz Christmas, Merry Navidad!” screens from 4-5:30 p.m. This family-friendly Spanish language holiday film covers issues of cross-cultural traditions and a friendship centered on three young people who experience the magic of Christmas together first-hand. This is a perfect opportunity for families with students in the new Dual Immersion program at the Elementary School to see a movie in Spanish with English subtitles.

At 6 p.m., the hit Disney classic “Frozen” will be played. The 2013 took the world by storm ranking the highest-grossing animated film of all time. In addition to the screening, the downstairs Gallery Room will be transformed into an Ice Castle with characters from the movie, Princesses Elsa & Anna and Olaf the Snowman greeting children for photos and hot chocolate. Admission to the Ice Castle is $5 (children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult) with tickets for sale at the door.


The Ice Castle will be open throughout the day during the following hours: 2-2:30 p.m., 3:30-4 p.m., 5:30-6 p.m., 7:30-8 p.m.

Will Ferrell’s “Elf” screens at 9 p.m. The movie is about one of Santa’s elves who learns his true identity as a human and goes to New York City to meet his biological father while spreading Christmas cheer. The bar opens at 8:30 p.m. with holiday drink specials. Although this film is geared toward kids, we encourage adults to come out for this late night feature with drinking games. Put the kids to bed and join us for a good time with your friends.

The inaugural Holiday Movie Marathon is the perfect way to spend time with friends or family.

Concessions will be open for all the screenings with the bar opening for the Late Night Feature of “Elf.”
