The Pritzker Military Library gets good use out of its beautiful new theater with a Saturday movie series. This week it features the classic White Christmas. Yeah, yeah, you’ve seen it a million times. Today watch it in a new light: Military historian Teri Embrey gives an introduction that puts the film in context of WWII, when parts of the movie are set. Pritzker Military Library, 104 S Michigan Ave (312-374-9333). 1:04pm; $5, members free.
