Visit & Photo With Santa - And do good, too!
For the 24th Holiday Season in a row, Santa Claus will hear holiday wishes and take photos with his many fans in the Grand Lobby of the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre.

Everyone is welcome - kids, the young at heart, even pets! (Pet owners are asked to come between 12PM and 1:30PM only so as to leave the first hour for children and parents with pet allergies.)

The visit is FREE!


A quality digital photo is only $5 -- OR, if the child or parent bring a new, unwrapped toy for a needy child, the photo will be free too! (Donated toys will be distributed off-site by a local charitable service.)

Twenty four Holiday Season ago, Friends of the Loew's brought Santa to the historic Theatre for the first time in order to give people a unique way to enjoy a favorite tradition of the Season. Now its become a tradition of its own, but it's still unique:

The setting is one of New Jersey's most ornate, landmark spaces that is richly decorated each year by Friends of the Loew's volunteers.

And because the Loew's is a non-profit theatre, the event is less hectic and less commercial than in malls and stores.

The price of a keepsake photo with Santa is also much more affordable.

Best of all, the Loew's Santa event is intended to give children and their parents a way to remember the less fortunate among us even as they contemplate their own Holiday wishes. That's why we encourage Santa's visitors to bring a toy for a needy child who might otherwise not have any Holiday -- and in return we thank them for their generosity with a free photo.

This Visit Santa event is presented by Friends of the Loew's as a community service.

The Classic Holiday Show - "Miracle On 34th Street" On Screen AND A Live Concert On Stage
Do you remember . . . long ago, when we were all kids, there was one Christmastime when you went to a big old theatre downtown, the kind that looked like a palace, for a special holiday show. There was a concert of wonderful voices and music from one of the biggest pipe organs you’d ever seen or heard. Plus you got to sing along to some of the songs. And then you enjoyed a holiday movie on the theatre’s enormous screen.

No matter if this is one of your most cherished memories -- or a memory you only wished you had -- now you can re-live it! And bring your kids too!

ON STAGE -- Saturday, December 9 4:30 PM
Live Holiday Concert PLUS Sing-Along.
Some traditions are worth keeping. Enjoy the most cherished music of the season performed by Taresa Blunda and Howard Richman, accompanied by the power and majesty of the Loew’s extraordinary Wonder Morton pipe organ, played by Bernie Anderson. PLUS -- relive a great old movie theatre tradition: an audience sing along with words projected on screen.

ON SCREEN -- Saturday, December 9 6PM
"Miracle On 34th Street"
Starring Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara, Natalie Wood, John Payne. Directed by George Seaton. 1947, 97mins., B&W.

If Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" effectively captured Christmas in Victorian England, "Miracle On 34th Street" is the embodiment of Christmas in 20th Century America.
What, after all, could be more wonderfully familiar than a story that begins with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, continues with a department store Santa trying to convince a skeptical littler girl (and her mother too), adds some corporate skullduggery, takes pokes at the legal system and the Post Office, even throws in some political machinations and a courtroom drama, and ends with the improbable triumph of an underdog? And if Dickens included a scathing rebuke of greed, "Miracle" adds in a not-too-subtle commentary on the advancing encroachment of crass commercialism. The film also benefits immensely from its New York City location footage, realistic sets, and just slightly understated tone -- all of which makes it surprising easy to catch yourself believing the story as it unfolds. Top off all of this with a well-paced scrip and a great cast -- and you get an absolutely wonderful movie. And for all the greeting cards, cola ads, Christmas pageants and TV shows that have featured him, Santa Claus has never had a better incarnation than this film's charming and dignified Kris Kringle. There have been two attempts to remake "Miracle On 34th Street", but neither have captured the charm or earned the enduring fame of the first. But the original is much more than just a great movie. It has become a tradition of its own, something shared across generations, down the decades during the holiday season. It's a film for the ages, and for all ages. Come share and enjoy it on the Big Screen.

Admission for BOTH the Concert AND Movie is just $12 adults, $8 kids (12 & under) & seniors.

 
 PM 9:00--PM 11:00
