Hey People – It’s Pageant Theater Time!

After almost 2 years of closure due to the pandemic and some remodeling, the Pageant Theater is open again! Chico’s only “art house” cinema theater.

I hope you didn’t miss “Benedetta,” a stark film, based on a true story, that takes place during Medieval times but with themes relevant to today: religious fanaticism and the Black Plague.

This week it’s “Come On, Come On,” a feel good movie that’ll warm you up during these cold winter nights.

Lastly, if you’re like me, you’ve probably seen the 1947 classic “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, practically every year during the holiday season. Watch poor George as he grapples with the purpose of his very existence. But the movie is also about issues we here in Chico are deeply concerned about today: Greed, political control, development, affordable housing and the meaning of community. Playing this weekend, Sat. and Sun.
