The Man Who Invented Christmas

Tuesday, 12/17

“Christopher Plummer is mind-blowing. It’s a great film.” – Mike Sargent, “The unforgettable films of 2017,” PBS NewsHour

The magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge (the indomitable Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and all the classic characters from A Christmas Carol, receives an elegantly appointed update courtesy of executive producer (Miami’s own) Mitchell Kaplan. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day), The Man Who Invented Christmas shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens, the beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) mixed real-life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today. Preceded by the Looney Tunes short Little Red Riding Rabbit.
