Advent Family Film Night Friday December 14th 6:00pm
“The Muppet Christmas Carol” (Disney, 1992) The Muppets are back in a festive, entertaining and fast moving re-creation of Dickens’ ‘A Christ- mas Carol.’ Filled with good tunes, bright and entertaining characters, (Ms. Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit and Kermit as Bob) and some superior sets and side characters such as the family of poor mice who long to find ‘cheeses for us meeces.!’.This is one that my family goes back to watch every year. Child friendly for all ages and very enjoyable for every adult too. Highly recommended.
Wednesday December 19th at 6 pm
“Love Actually” (Universal, 2003) A Christmas-themed romantic dramedy featuring an incredible ensemble cast; Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, High Grant, Keira Knightly, Liam Neeson. Laura Linney, Colin Firth and many more. The films story line, beginning five weeks before Christmas, is spilt amongst ten different intersecting tales, all about love or the lack of it, and mostly set in London. It has become a true holiday classic. in ways It’s a Wonderful Life, for a new time and day. If you are a romantic who likes to be served laughs and a little holiday pathos, this is for you! Highly, highly recommended. Wait till you see Bill Nighy playing a washed up 60s rocker attempting a Christmas comeback … touching and hilarious! You are always welcome to bring your dinner and drinks. Popcorn and lemonade will be provided.
