The Nugget: Free Screening “The Peanuts Movie,” 12/2 & 3

In “The Peanuts Movie,” Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut. And we see them like they’ve never been seen before, in state-of-the-art 3D animation.

Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the “Ice Age” films, “The Peanuts Movie” proves every underdog has his day.

In the spirit of holiday giving – and to support those in need – Nugget Theatre owners, the Formbys, in collaboration with Julie Huntsinger, director, and the Telluride Film Festival, are sponsoring a free screening of “The Peanuts Movie” on Noel Night, Wednesday, December 2, and again on Thursday, December 3, 2015. Show times each day are 4 p.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m.

And on those days, for each bag of popcorn sold (any size), $10 will be donated to Angel Baskets. (Which could mean thousands of dollars for the nonprofit).

Angels Baskets was founded in 1981 to provide food and gifts for local families. One hundred percent of the donations received have a direct impact on the lives of the families Angel Baskets serves.

So if you need a break from shopping, love Peanuts, and/or want to support a worthy cause, head for The Nugget Theatre.
