HOLIDAY SPIRIT ON THE BIG SCREEN

This year’s holiday series begins with a matinee screening of THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL, with Michael Caine joining Kermit, Miss Piggy and all your favorites in a comedic spin on the Charles Dickens classic. Also in the family-friendly vein is our Looney Tunes Winter Wonderland program. Blockbusters BATMAN RETURNS and GREMLINS both take place as Christmastime, as does DIE HARD; in honor of hero John McLane’s (Bruce Willis) love of Roy Rogers, we pair the action hit with the Western star’s TRAIL OF ROBIN HOOD.

Our annual co-presentation with Outfest of AUNTIE MAME stars Rosalind Russell in the title role; the Comden & Green-penned comedy is the perfect cup of eggnog to warm a December night. Another holiday tradition at the Cinematheque is the heart-warming ELF, featuring Will Ferrell as one of Santa’s helpers searching for his real father. Cinematic Void wishes you a very grisly Christmas with double features of DIAL CODE: SANTA CLAUS paired with BLOOD BEAT and THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD paired with THE ORACLE.

If you prefer an old-fashioned Christmas, we turn the clock back to 1904 for the beloved Judy Garland musical MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, and to 1183 for the acclaimed historical drama THE LION IN WINTER. You’ll have three chances to enjoy seasonal evergreen IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: The Frank Capra/Jimmy Stewart classic screens once at the Egyptian and twice at the Aero the week before Christmas.

Author Jeremy Arnold will be on hand to sign his new book Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season and to introduce select screenings. Read an interview with Jeremy on what makes a "Christmas Movie" on our blog in an interview with Susan King.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by John Hagelston.
