Dec. 7, 2017  –  “Sullivan’s Travels”

Written and directed by Preston Sturges, Sullivan’s Travels is one of the greatest Hollywood satires ever made. John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) is an idealist filmmaker who decides to make a serious, socially responsible movie instead of his typical comedic fare.  Realizing that he cannot accurately direct a screen tragedy unless he lived it first, he decides to hit the road disguised as a hobo. Along the way, he meets a beautiful yet cynical wanderer (Veronica Lake) and finds himself in more trouble than he ever imagined. (BW) (1941) (1h 30m) (NR)

 Dec. 14, 2017  –  “Elf”

This hilarious Christmas film tells the tale of a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts on Christmas Eve and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf. Years later Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York City to find his true identity. (C) (2003) (1h 34m) (PG)

Dec. 21, 2017 –  “The Santa Clause”

On Christmas Eve, divorced father Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) and his son Charlie discover the current Mr. Claus has fallen off their roof. When Scott dons Santa’s suit, he unwittingly triggers “The Santa Clause,” and they are immediately whisked away to the North Pole to take on the role of jolly old St. Nick. (C) (1994) (1h 37m) (PG)

Dec. 28, 2017  –  “Murder By Death”

The world’s greatest detectives have been invited to dinner. But when murder is on the menu, who will make it to dessert? You are cordially invited to join an all-star cast featuring Peter Sellers, David Niven, Peter Falk, James Coco, Elsa Lanchester, Maggie Smith, Alec Guinness, Eileen Brennan, Nancy Walker, James Cromwell and Estelle Winwood for Neil Simon’s hilarious murder-mystery spoof. The isolated mansion of eccentric millionaire Lionel Twain (Truman Capote) is the setting for the twisted puzzler. Twain informs his guests that one of them will be murdered at the stroke of midnight. The pay-off: $1 million to whoever lives through the night. MURDER BY DEATH neatly lampoons both the mystery genre and the characterizations of these instantly recognizable gumshoes.  (C) (1976) (1h 34m) (PG)
