Thursday, December 29

"A total delight!" —Deadline

"Cristopher Plummer is splendid." —Variety


FREE SCREENING with Introduction by Les Standiford and Mitchell Kaplan

The magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge (the indomitable Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and all the classic characters from A Christmas Carol, receives an elegantly appointed update courtesy of executive producer (Miami’s own) Mitchell Kaplan. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day), The Man Who Invented Christmas shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens, the beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) mixed real-life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.

The Man Who Invented Christmas is based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name written by Miami author Les Standiford. Mitchell Kaplan, owner of Books & Books, co-founder of the Miami Book Fair, and board member of Coral Gables Art Cinema, produced the film.

This film is presented in partnership with Books & Books.
