The Man Who Invented Christmas

After Echo In The Canyon our next film will be The Man Who Invented Christmas.  I thought a seasonal offering might be a good idea and this one sounds interesting.  

We are changing some things here at the Cinema House.  Our movie showing times will be at 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday.  Our Saturday times will remain 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  This change begins with the showings of The Man Who Invented Christmas.  You will still be able to have chef's amazing food (either the dinner & a movie special or any items a la carte) at all of our showings.  

Also due to Department of Health regulations no outside food or beverages (even water) will be permitted. 

Here is the information about The Man Who Invented Christmas.




In 1843, the celebrated British novelist, Charles Dickens, is at a low point in his career with three flops behind him and his family expenses piling up at home. Determined to recover, Dickens decides to write a Christmas story and self-publish it in less than two months. As Dickens labors writing on such short notice, his estranged father and mother come to bunk with him. Still haunted by painful memories of his father ruining his childhood by his financial irresponsibility, Dickens develops a writer's block which seems to have no solution. As such, Dickens must face his personal demons epitomized through his characters, especially in his imagined conversations with Ebenezer Scrooge. Now with a looming deadline, Dickens struggles for inspiration against his frustrations and his characters' opinions in a literary challenge creating a classic tale that would define the essential soul of modern Christmas.

Two years after the success of Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens is suffering financial hardship from the failure of his last three books. Rejected by his publishers, he sets out to write a new book to restore his finances. Seeing inspiration around London, most notably a rich man's funeral that is largely unattended, he begins writing A Christmas Carol, due in six weeks in order to be published by Christmas. As Charles begins to develop his story, he interacts with the characters he is writing about, most notably Ebenezer Scrooge. Helping Dickens is one of his servants, Tara, an Irish immigrant who is literate and able to provide advice.
