Miracle on 34th Street
After the success of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ last Christmas, Stirchley Happening’s Travelling Bug House returns to Stirchley Community Church at 4pm on Saturday 17th December for another festive cinematic treat.
The 1947 classic ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ sees an oscar-winning performance from Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle: a kind-natured, Christmas-loving, white-bearded old fellow who claims he is the real Father Christmas. After being employed by a businesswoman who doesn’t believe in fairy tales (Maureen O’Hara) to work as a Macy’s department store Santa, he has to go to great lengths to prove to her and her sceptical daughter that the spirit of Christmas is alive.
Doors open at 3.30pm, for a 4pm start, and the film will be preceeded by shorts from the Media Archive of Central England, with footage from Birmingham’s Christmas past.
Tickets will be available from:
Stirchley Community Church Cafe, Hazelwell Street, B30 2JX from next Tuesday 29th November. The cafe is open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am-2pm. www.stirchleychurch.org
Stirchley Community Market on Tuesday 6th December, at Stirchley United Working Men’s Club, Hazelwell Lane, B30 2PP, from 4pm-8pm. www.stirchleycommunitymarket.wordpress.com
And there’s a possibility they’ll be available from other places too: do check the Travelling Bug House page of our website, and keep a lookout on Twitter and Facebook, or call 07966660771 and talk to Chris about getting hold of some.
Tickets are priced at £3.50/£2.50 for under 16s and over 60s.
The screening will be upstairs, but a lift is available.
