It’s the holiday season – and Santa is coming to town!!! 😛
Please join us on Saturday the 20th to celebrate the holidays with the Film Society at the first ever MARTHA’S VINEYARD FILM CENTER WINTER HOLIDAY FESTIVAL with Santa Clause himself! We will be taking photographs with Santa prior to the film from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. as we ask the community to join us in decorating our holiday tree, singing carols, and spreading some cheer.
We will have cookies, eggnog, and special treats in the lobby for all! So please join us in this family affair before we show the classic family-holiday-comedy HOME ALONE.
It is Christmas time and the McCallister family is preparing for a vacation in Paris, France. But the youngest in the family named Kevin got into a scuffle with his older brother Buzz and was sent to his room…which is on the third floor of his house.
Then, the next morning, while the rest of the family was in a rush to make it to the airport on time, they completely forgot about Kevin – who now has the house all to himself. Being home alone was fun for Kevin, having a pizza all to himself, jumping on his parents’ bed, and making a mess. Then, Kevin discovers the plans of two burglars, Harry and Marv, about to rob his house on Christmas Eve.
Kevin acts quickly by wiring his own house with makeshift booby traps to stop the burglars and to bring them to justice. In this hilarious 1990’s original we follow Kevin transforming his home into a trick-house to catch the bad guys while he learns the true meaning of family.
We will be giving out presents to all the kids who line up to say hi to Santa and decorate our beautiful holiday tree! Please join us this holiday season at the Film Center.
"There are few movies that can be described as never having a dull moment, and Home Alone fits in this small group. It's the perfect family holiday film."
-Kevin Carr 7M PICTURES
"Pic boasts wonderful casting, with Culkin a delight as funny, resilient Kevin, and O'Hara bringing a snappy, zesty energy to the role of mom."
"This is a film which manages to capture some of the best qualities of Christmas in a surprisingly enjoyable format and will provide the whole family with large quantities of festive spirit."
