Screening of The Santa Clause with Actor Judge Reinhold Benefits ASYR

UPDATE: December 5, 2016


Thank you to Judge Reinhold for making Sunday’s screening of The Santa Clause at the Melba Theater such a special event for the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches!

unnamed (1)More than 220 attended this special screening and Q&A with Reinhold to benefit the Ranches. Reinhold talked about his experience making the film with actor Tim Allen. He answered questions spanning his acting career and also talked about what made him pursue acting as a career.

Reinhold also spoke about his upbringing on a farm in Virginia. He said he feels like he has come full circle now that he lives in Arkansas and says he enjoys the pace of life in Arkansas. He talked about how he relates to the boys and girls who live at the ASYR and how they are an inspiration to him.

After the Q&A (which included a demonstration of the original Oscar Meyer Weenie Whistle from the film!), Reinhold spent time signing autographs and taking photos with the audience. Thank you to the Melba Theater and all who attended Sunday’s screening for supporting the ASYR!
