The CD Holiday Party packed the house at Central Cinema Sunday evening.
Residents had the chance to get their photos taken with Santa (hosted by Central Cinema neighbor Reel Grrls) and watch a series of youth performances.
Neighborhood break dancing students from Coyote Central wowed the crowd, and Meter Music School students kept the tunes coming.
Central Cinema also held a little get-together cocktail hour before the party to celebrate the up-and-down roller coaster of a year for the neighborhood theater. 2012 kicked off with a threat from the Washington Liquor Control Board, which told them rule changes may have made Central Cinema’s family-friendly business model illegal. Neighbors and city leaders united to urge a rule change to allow the theater to continue to operate.
Below are some videos from the CD Holiday Party (starring the Coyote Central advanced break dancing class and the Meter Music School guitar band). If you have any photos, email them to [email protected] or add them to the Central District Flickr pool.
