See ‘The Nutcracker’ on a big screen Saturday

Dan Webster

Though some of us had to be dragged into the realization, we have now entered the Christmas holiday season. And what spells Christmas better than "The Nutcracker"?

An encore presentation of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet, performed by the Bolshoi Ballet, will screen at 12:55 on Saturday at the Regal Cinemas theater at Northtown Mall.

The production features Margarita Shrainer as the innocent Marie while Semyon Chudin performs as The Nutcracker his own self.

It's not exactly "A Christmas Story," but this version of Tchaikovsky's music should get your seasonal juices flowing. In return, that should fuel your desire to send off those letters to Santa.

Maybe ask for some dance shoes?
