Dec. 7 – Rise of the Guardians, Rise of the Guardians tells the story of a group of heroes — each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit, known as Pitch, lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world. (Rated PG)
Dec. 14 – Home Alone, Home Alone is the highly successful and beloved family comedy about a young boy named Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for a vacation in France over the holiday season. Once he realizes they’ve left him home alone, he learns to fend for himself and, eventually has to protect his house against two bumbling burglars (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) who are planning to rob every house in Kevin’s suburban Chicago neighborhood. Though the film’s slapstick ending may be somewhat violent, Culkin’s charming presence helped the film become one of the most successful ever at the time of its release.~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Movie Guide (Rated PG)
Dec. 21 – White Christmas, This Christmas classic starring Bing Crosby is a romantic tale that takes place in a Vermont lodge- where it is almost always, a “White Christmas.” (Not Rated)
