David Howes is a movie fan. That would be one movie in particular that he says he has seen "200 times." That is the Jim Carrey live action version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. David said he started collecting a couple of ornaments from the movie early on, but then his collecting "got out of hand."

He now has more than two-hundred pieces  including the Whoville Baby Carriage, Jim Carrey's Grinch as Santa costume. There are toys and presents, a street light, a stop light and a complete outfit from Cindy Lou Who.

David's Grinch movie props will be on display through the holidays at the Aurora Theatre which has been transformed into a mini-Whoville through the holidays. David remebers that he thought his collecting might be getting out of hand when he purchased the original Grinch sleigh. That piece will be on display at Clydes Feed and Animal Center on Saturday November 26th and then at Aurora Theatre after that.

And in a very un-Grinch-like fashion-The Aurora Theatre in East Aurora will be offering free holiday movies. You can check their website for more information.
