HARRY POTTER & THE SORCERER’S STONE

HARRY POTTER & THE SORCERER’S STONE

NOVEMBER 19 & 22

Relive the magic (or experience the thrill for the first time) of seeing Harry Potter’s first adventure on the big screen. Harry is a new student at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, where he must face the dreaded “He Who Must Not Be Named.”  Daniel Radcliffe stars as the 11-year-old wizard destined for greatness, and Rupert Grint and Emma Watson play his best friends Ron and Hermione. (“She needs to sort out her priorities!”)

2001

Rated PG





HOME ALONE

HOME ALONE

NOVEMBER 26 & 29

The hit comedy starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, an 8-year-old boy who is mad at his family and wishes they would disappear.  When they accidentally leave for Christmas vacation without him, he gets his wish.  But he finds being “home alone” isn’t all fun and games (or is it?) when two bungling burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) force him to defend his house.    (“You guys give up? Or are you thirsty for more?”) 

1990

Rated PG





WHITE CHRISTMAS

WHITE CHRISTMAS

DECEMBER 3 & 6

With comedy, romance, and of course, Bing Crosby singing White Christmas, this movie musical favorite is chock-full of Irving Berlin songs (“Snow…snow…snow!”). Crosby and Danny Kaye star as World War II vets and Broadway performers who stage a show at a Vermont inn. Edith Head designed the colorful costumes worn by Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen as the Haynes Sisters.  (“Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister…”)

1954






THE POLAR EXPRESS

THE POLAR EXPRESS

DECEMBER 10 & 13

On Christmas Eve a boy boards a mysterious train bound for the North Pole. This adaptation of the children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg has a score by Alan Silvestri that features original songs plus classic holiday recordings from the 1940’s. The “performance capture” animation used by director Robert Zemeckis made it possible for Tom Hanks to play six roles, including Santa.  ("The true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.”)

2004

Rated G





ELF

ELF

DECEMBER 17 & 20

Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, an elf who is, well, different from the other elves. When Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) informs Buddy that he was adopted, he sets out to find his real father (James Caan). This surprise hit comedy has become a modern Christmas classic, thanks to Ferrell’s endearing performance as Buddy, whose childlike Christmas spirit softens the most cynical of hearts.  (“Santa, HERE? I know him, I know him!”)

2003

Rated PG





IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

DECEMBER 24 & 27

Frank Capra’s classic is a cherished Christmas tradition for countless families. Building & loan owner George Bailey (James Stewart) is all that stands between the people of Bedford Falls and the wicked miser Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore). When misfortune strikes on Christmas Eve, George realizes, with the help of an angel named Clarence, (Henry Travers) that he truly has a “wonderful life.”  ("No man is a failure who has friends.”)

1946

Rated PG





DIE HARD

DIE HARD

DECEMBER 31 & JANUARY 3

Is it a Christmas movie or isn’t it? Who cares? It’s one of the best action thrillers ever. Bruce Willis is New York cop John McClane, in LA during Christmas to visit his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia). When the skyscraper in which Holly works is taken over by a murderous gang it falls to McClane to save the day. Alan Rickman is superbly sinister as the chief villain. (“Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?”)

1988
