Hallie’s and Ethan’s divorced mother is about to remarry. When Hallie goes to visit Santa Claus

Sid Family Films presents All I Want for Christmas

The Sid Williams Theatre Society’s family film series will screen a 1990’s holiday favourite All I Want For Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 2 p.m.

If teenaged Ethan and his younger sister Hallie put every toy in Macy’s on their Christmas list, it still wouldn’t include what they want most. They want a miracle – they want their divorced parents back together!

With lots of humour, heart, and yuletide sparkle, All I Want For Christmas is all you could want in a family film treat. Ethan Randall and Thora Birch play siblings who come up with a hilarious plan to reunite their parents (Harley Jane Kozak and Jamey Sheridan).

Movie legend Lauren Bacall plays the sympathetic grandmother who assists the kids. And Leslie Nielsen appears as Santa Claus.

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.

The family film series continues this season with Thumbelina (Jan. 15) and The Pagemaster (Feb. 12).

The Sid Williams Theatre Society welcomes new sponsor Finneron Hyundai to the family film series this season. These family films are fundraising events for the theatre society. The Sid was a state-of-the-art movie house when it opened 81 years ago, then known as the Bickle Theatre.
