Baby it’s cold outside, but there’s time to play.
Bainbridge High was reppin’ at Sundance this year, with a melancholy flick produced by ’01 grad Clare Paterson and written/directed by her husband Charles Poekel. Playing at Dragonfly Cinemas in Port Orchard through next Thursday, “Christmas, Again” is about a heartbroken Christmas tree salesman who returns to New York City for yet another season, hoping to put the past year, and specifically an ex-girlfriend, behind him. He spars with customers and two lovey-dovey co-workers until a mysterious woman helps to rescue him from his gloom. Dragonfly Cinemas, 822 Bay St., Port Orchard. Daily through Dec. 17, times vary. $9.50 general admission; $7.50 senior/child, evening showing; $7.50 general admission, matinee; $5.50 senior/child, matinee; free for military, police, firefighter with I.D. 360-519-4333, www.dragonflycinema.com.
