On Sunday, Dec. 23, at 11:30 a.m., it's the 2003 comedy classic "Elf." Reminding us that the "the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear," the film stars Will Ferrell as a man-sized elf who is forced to leave the North Pole after inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community because of ungainly size. He journeys to the United States in search of his true identity and manages to teach us all a thing or two about Christmas spirit. "Elf" stars Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Ed Asner, Bob Newhart and Mary Steenburgen. It is Rated PG. Common Sense Media recommends "Elf" for kids ages 7 and up. People who go to the Latchis on Dec. 23 will have a chance to enter a fun Elf raffle.
On Dec. 30, at 11:30 a.m., get set to ring in 2019 with "Rudolph's Shiny New Year," a 1976 animated gem from Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr. When the baby New Year is reported as missing, Rudolph goes on a quest to find him. This 50-minute feature is recommended for ages 3 and up by Common Sense Media.
Admission for all these films is by donation. For information, visit latchisarts.org.
