DENISON, TX -- Hundreds turned out to watch a holiday favorite and help out a good cause.

KTEN sponsored tonight's showing of "It's A Wonderful Life" at the Rialto Theater on West Main Street. The admission price was a donation of canned food, and the donations go to the Salvation Army.

A few hundred people turned out to catch the classic movie with Jimmy Stewart. "It's great for the whole community, for something like this everybody come together," says theater owner Greg Guymon. "We've got a lot of needy families in this area, especially with the economy the way it is, you know it just couldn't be better timing for us and everybody else in grayson county."

Next week's showing is Elf, followed the next week by The Polar Express on December 7. Then on December 14, the movie will be A Christmas Carol. Showtime is 7:10 p.m.
