Scrooge FREE Screening Sunday December 3rd in the Winn Room of the Coronado Library

God bless us, everyone!” Scrooge, a FREE Advent Family Movie Event – Sunday December 3rd at 1 PM – in the Coronado Library’s Winn Room: Charles Dickens’ timeless tale of redemption is the most enduring Christmas story in literary history. Most critics agree that 1951’s Scrooge is the definitive cinematic adaptation of A Christmas Carol. This version of the story owes its enduring relevance to a superb performance by the actor who plays Scrooge, Alastair Sim. He “inhabits” the role, playing the miserly pessimist with perfect notes of cynical humbug. He endures the spirit visitations with a deft mix of shock, fear and haunting regret.  Scrooge’s climatic redemption and his gratitude and childlike delight to simply be alive, are as thrilling as they are emotionally satisfying. The final shots of Scrooge, a man born again, with Tiny Tim, are images to hold in your heart in this Advent season.
