“Pocketful of Miracles” (1961). Set against the Christmas season in Manhattan, Frank Capra’s thickly sentimental and broadly comic remake of his earlier “Lady for a Day” would be his last film and Ann-Margret’s first. Glenn Ford is a gangster trying to give street peddler “Apple Annie” (Bette Davis) a makeover before a visit from her daughter, who is unaware of her mother’s destitute circumstances. Peter Falk leads a sterling cast of supporting players. (Tuesday, Nov. 26, 10 a.m., SCERA Center, Orem, www.scera.org/events/view/322)
“Miracle on 34th Street” (1947/1994, G/PG). The “real” Santa Claus (Oscar-winner Edmund Gwenn/Richard Attenborough) faces a challenge when an adorable little girl (Natalie Wood/Mara Wilson) refuses to believe in him. Both theatrical versions of the classic story will be shown, the black-and-white original at 1 p.m. and the color remake at 7 p.m. (Wednesday, Nov. 30, Peery’s Egyptian Theater, Ogden, egyptiantheaterogden.com/calendar/2013-11-30?mini=calendar%2F2013-11)
