Christmas on the Screen Slide

From Miracle on 34th Street to Love Actually, generations of Christmas films tell us about American spirituality and social values:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas weighs materialism against community.

The Polar Express tests the wonder of miracles in an age of cynicism.

-  And Die Hard (yes, Die Hard) wrestles with the impact of broken relationships on holiday joy.

Join us for a presentation by author John A. Zukowski for a tour of Christmas films and American values, asking the question, “What does Christmas mean to us?”

His book Christmas on the Screen will also be available for purchase for $24.95. Signed books make great gifts!
