Arthur saves Christmas at the Sid

Part of the Sid Williams Theatre Society’s family film series

Come celebrate the season at the Sid Williams Theatre!

Arthur Christmas will screen Sunday, Dec.  13 at 2 p.m. as part of the Sid Williams Theatre Society’s family film series.

Everyone knows that each Christmas Santa Claus delivers presents to every last child on Earth. What everyone doesn’t know is that Santa accomplishes the feat with a very high-tech operation beneath the North Pole.

But when the unthinkable happens, and Santa misses one child out of hundreds of millions, someone has to save the day.

It’s up to Arthur (James McAvoy), Santa’s youngest son, to deliver a present to the forgotten tyke before Christmas morning dawns.

Don’t miss this fun and affordable afternoon for the whole family. Admission is pay what you can by donation. There will be popcorn and prizes. Doors open at 1 p.m. and the film begins at 2.

There are great prizes to be won in a colouring contest thanks to family film series sponsor the Financial Team of Nicole Deters & Associates. Stop by the Sid Williams Theatre’s ticket centre – Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – to pick up a colouring contest entry and bring the completed page to the film on Dec. 13.

The family film series continues in the new year with Matilda (Jan. 17) and We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story (Feb. 7).

These family films are fundraising events for the Sid Williams Theatre Society. The Sid was a state-of-the-art movie house when it opened 80 years ago, then known as the Bickle Theatre.
