The Power & Light District issued the call, and Kansas Citys discerning cinéastes responded, paring down a field of 10 Christmas classics, old and new, to the three most-wanted movies of this holiday season. They're being screened at the AMC Mainstreet 6 (1400 Main, 816-474-4545) on successive Saturdays at 11 a.m. (Tuesdays, too, at 7 p.m.). The series began with Frank Capras Its a Wonderful Life snd Bob Clarks A Christmas Story. Now, the Griswolds are back, with their ageless vampire children and the now-fugitive Cousin Eddie, in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation December 14 and 18. Tickets for these holiday-movie screenings cost only $5. For more information, see amctheatres.com/mainstreet.
