The 14th Annual Bing Crosby Holiday Film Festival will be held on Saturday, Dec 14, 2019, featuring some of the best loved films of Spokane’s own Bing Crosby, along with a gallery of photos of the famous entertainer, film clips of him entertaining the troops in WWII and a special live musical performance by Howard Crosby (son of Bing Crosby’s brother Ted) and Spokane’s own Hot Club of Spokane, featuring music from the Crosby era.
The non-profit Bing Crosby Advocates(BCA) presents the festival at the Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane each December as part of the community’s celebration of the holiday season. It was at this theater, then known as the Clemmer, that a young Bing Crosby began his career by performing skits in between the silent films shown there. The theater was renamed for him in 2006.
Tickets for the festival are $10 each and are good for the entire day’s events. Tickets are available at the door only (no advance sales) and must be purchased by check or cash (no credit/debit cards).Children age 12 and under will be admitted free.
