A Not So Silent Night (2009)
Direct from the Knitting Factory stage in downtown Manhattan, A NOT SO SILENT NIGHT features Kate and Anna McGarrigle in a live performance of The McGarrigle Christmas Hour, joined by Kate’s children, Rufus and Martha Wainwright. Other guests include Grammy award-winner Emmylou Harris, Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed, and famed performance artist Laurie Anderson. An eclectic cast performing original and traditional Christmas-themed songs transports viewers through a rousing rendition of the Christmas story.
96 minutes. NR.
The Holly and the Ivy (1952)
The heart-warming Christmas tale set in post-war Britain based on the classic play by Wynyard Browne. Ralph Richardson plays Reverend Martin Gregory, a recently widowed minister torn between his roles of clergyman and father. His zeal for attending to his parishioners leads him to neglect the needs of his own family, until emotions boil over one Christmas.
A charming and moving seasonal favorite, peaking with the family’s poignant reconciliation as they rediscover the true spirit of Christmas.
80 minutes. NR.
I Am Santa Claus (2014)
I AM SANTA CLAUS (featuring Hall of Fame Wrestler, Mick Foley) is a documentary that follows the lives of five real-bearded professional Santa Clauses as they anticipate and prepare for the coming Christmas season while showing them for who they actually are – flawed, flesh-and-blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of a fictitious being.
89 minutes. NR.
