A Spokane holiday season is not complete without watching at least one of Spokane native Bing Crosby’s films. Back for its 13th year, the Bing Crosby Holiday Film Festival focuses on Bing’s contributions to the nation during WWII with classics like White Christmas along with a couple of lesser known films, Pennies from Heaven and Road to Zanzibar. Stay out of the cold weather and settle in at the Bing for an all-day movie marathon. Take a break between films and listen to a performance by Howard Crosby, the son of Bing Crosby’s brother Ted, and the Hot Club of Spokane, who play tunes from the Crosby era.
Sat, Dec. 8 from 11:30 am-8 pm • $10; children under 12 free • Bing Crosby Theater • 901 W. Sprague • bingcrosbytheater.com
