Sedona International Film Festival presents the Broadway HD series — featuring Broadway plays and musicals in high definition on the big screen — with Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn.” The event will show in Sedona on Thursday, Jan. 4, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“It is like having fifth row orchestra seats to the best theatrical productions from Broadway,” said Festival Director Patrick Schweiss. “Experience these grand, phenomenal stage productions from New York from the best seats in the house — right here in Sedona.”
Jim [Bryce Pinkham] leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut ... but life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance — featuring Tony-nominated choreography by Denis Jones.
Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda [Lora Lee Gayer], a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn Jim’s farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted [Corbin Bleu] tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?
