Screens for Teens: The Muppet Christmas Carol
Join us as we close our Screens for Teens series with this family-friendly film, just in time for the holiday season.
This series of contemporary and classic films is specially curated for teenagers in and around Cambridge. The selection, including both short and feature-length films, is meant to provide teens with an opportunity to watch work focused explicitly on their experiences. Covering a range of topics, emotions, and nuances, these free films—depending on length and scope—will be followed by conversation with faculty from the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
About today’s film:
The Muppet Christmas Carol, 1992 (Walt Disney Pictures; English; 85 min.)
’Tis the season for love, laughter, and one of the most cherished stories of all time. Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all the hilarious Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens’s classic tale. Michael Caine gives a performance that’s anything but “Bah, humbug!” as greedy, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Together with kind, humble Bob Cratchit (Kermit the Frog) and his family, these Spirits open Scrooge’s eyes—and his heart—to the true meaning of Christmas.
Free admission. Seating is first come, first served.
The screening will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Doors will open at 1:30pm.
