Free movie: A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott
December 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pmFree
Brian Sessums is sponsoring a Christmas gift for all at the Strand this season: a free showing of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol.
The version he has chosen stars George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge, a hard-nosed, single-minded businessman in Victorian London. He has disowned his only living relative – his nephew Fred – and generally treats everyone he meets with extreme contempt. He hates Christmas, only cares about making money and only gives his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the day off. However, he is taught the true meaning and spirit of Christmas by three ghosts who show him his own past and present. He is also shown what the future holds for him if he doesn’t change his behavior.
Please come enjoy this Christmas Ghost story about a miser who learns the true spirit of the season. In that spirit we are inviting you to make donations to River City Rescue Mission. We will be collecting contributions at the show and passing them on to them.
Celebrate Christmas with us at the Strand. It’s a free movie, suitable for all.
Don’t forget: free popcorn! What a world!
