From Books to Movies: A Christmas Carol (1951)

1951posterThis fall, the Farmington Library will be hosting a series of film viewings and lectures with local movie buff Martha Reingold. Films based on books will be shown, followed by analysis of background, themes, and more. Viewings will begin at 6:15 p.m. at the Main Library, located at 6 Monteith Drive.

Film and literature lovers are encouraged to take part in these evenings of entertainment and engrossing discussion. December’s film is A Christmas Carol, and it will be shown on Monday, December 7, at 6:15 PM.

Everybody over the age of six knows Charles Dicken’s masterpiece, “A Christmas Carol.”  Ebenezer Scrooge is known the world-over as the mean old miser transformed into a cheerful philanthropist by ghosts that appear in the night. We will be enjoying the 1951 black and white film, starring Alastair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge. In Martha’s opinion, this is the best adaptation out there! Sim’s Scrooge is mean and caring, miserly and giving, proud and humble all at the same time.

This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk. If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance
