Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Twentieth Century Fox will be bringing holiday cheer to the big screen with Miracle on 34th Street (1947), back in cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event on Sunday, December 20 and Wednesday, December 23.
I have not personally seen this version, however, I look forward to watching it with my family. The kids are mystified about a movie being all black and white! The closest thing they’ve ever seen is the Wizard of Oz where part of it is black and white.
“Miracle on 34th Street is an irresistible fable that has, for many years, become synonymous with celebrating Christmas. The holiday season is in full swing when a cultured gentleman with twinkling eyes, an ample belly, and a snowy beard (Edmund Gwenn) is hired as Macy’s department store Santa. He claims his name is Kris Kringle, and soon fills everyone with Christmas spirit…except for his boss, Doris Walker (Maureen O’Hara), who’s raising her daughter (Natalie Wood) to not believe in Santa. But when Kringle is declared insane, and put on trial, everyone’s faith is put to the test as young and old alike face the age-old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus?”
I love that this movie puts the spirit of Christmas on the forefront and it gives everyone who sees it hope, it brings back memories of being a child, the excitement of the Christmas holiday. I urge everyone to go see it with their children, their parents, their nieces and nephews.
