"Have yourself a merry little Christmas..." so sings Esther Smith (Judy Garland) to her sister Tootie as they ponder the prospect of the family leaving behind their loved ones in St Louis and relocating to New York. Minnelli's tender, witty musical rivals the start of Welles' The Magnificent Ambersons in expressing, elegantly and eloquently, a warm nostalgia for an easier, slower, gentler way of American life. The production design, Technicolour and songs contribute to the affectionate mood, but it's the performance and the deceptively light script which supploy emotional substance." Geoff Andrew, BFI
This is a free screening but we would be delighted if you were able to donate to our Plus One scheme. This would give a child in care a chance to visit the cinema or attend a creative workshop, sometimes for the first time.
