‘Scrooge’ at Stirchley Community Church, Sunday 16th December, 4pm
In the year of Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday, we’ll be returning for our 3rd filmic Christmas at Stirchley Community Church with ‘Scrooge’ (1951), an adaptation of the classic yuletide tale, ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Alastair Sim plays the eponymous miser/hero in the most tight-fisted, touching and memorable portrayal of uncle Ebenezer in the history of cinema.
We’ll also be screening the wonderfully funny Laurel and Hardy short, ‘Big Business’, about a couple of ambitious door-to-door Christmas tree salesmen.
Doors open at around 3.30pm for a 4pm start at Stirchley Community Church, Hazelwell Street, B30 2JZ.
