Holidays at Metrograph
The holiday season provides the backdrop for a great many magical and mischievous films, for all sorts of adventures and romances can happen when regular work schedules don’t have to be attended to, and there’s something just plain cinematic about the twinkle of Christmas lights. With so many naughty and nice seasonal movies to choose from, we’ve made an annual tradition of showing the best, and this year we’ve heaped up plenty of seasonal goodies under our tree, from warm-and-cozy silver screen standards to modern masterworks—because chestnuts roasting on an open fire are nice, but there’s no substitute for the glow of the cinema screen.

Academy at Metrograph

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Continues its Residency
at Metrograph with Upcoming Winter Programming

Karen Allen and Carol Kane Present Scrooged on December 15
ACADEMY AT METROGRAPH continues in December, with upcoming programming that includesScrooged presented by actresses Karen Allen and Carol Kane on December 15.

On Saturday, December 15 at 5:00pm, actresses Karen Allen and Carol Kane will present Scrooged. An updating of A Christmas Carol for the “Greed is good” 80s, Richard Donner’s salty-sweet comic morality tale—co-written by Saturday Night Live legends Mitch Glazer and Michael O’Donoghue—stars Bill Murray as a nasty executive at IBC Television who, heartlessly keeping his underlings at work on Christmas Eve to complete a live telecast of Charles Dickens’s classic, finds himself visited by three very novel versions of three familiar ghosts.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) began a yearlong residency at Metrograph in July 2017, bringing exciting and entertaining programs to the big screen. Programs in ACADEMY AT METROGRAPH have and continue to feature onstage conversations with filmmakers and scholars of motion pictures, tributes, newsreels, rarely seen clips from past Oscar® ceremonies, and home movies from Hollywood legends.  This monthly series highlights unique archival elements, including recent restorations and film prints from the Academy Film Archive by celebrating classic moments from the Academy’s 90-year history.
