SHAWNEE, OK — Keeping with their annual tradition, the Hornbeck Theatre will be showing a free screening of “Daddy Day Camp”.

A Shawnee holiday tradition reaches another milestone when Jones Theatres presents its 86th annual free Children’s Christmas Show at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Hornbeck Theatre in downtown Shawnee.

On screen will be the family comedy “Daddy Day Camp,” rated PG. Cuba Gooding Jr. stars in the film. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. and the movie starts at 10 a.m. The movie is free to all ages up to the theater’s 500-seat capacity. Following the movie, Christmas candy will be distributed as people exit.

Begun in 1921 by Oklahoma pioneer showman Jake Jones Sr., the tradition was continued by his son Johnny H. Jones and daughter Ruby H. Jones. The show is continued in their memory by grandson Ronny Jones.
