Christmas Cinema

By Sarah Duggan on November 30, 2017

Welcome to one of the best times of year—the Holiday Season. There are many ways to celebrate, but one of my favorite ways to ring in Christmas is by watching the  best of the best holiday movies. Listed below are my top five favorite Christmas movies! Watch the Grosh Cinema Movie Listing for Sarah’s Pick! through the month of December.

#5 ~ The Family Stone (2005): This one is a tear jerker and I am a sucker for crying in movies. Holiday gatherings make already functionally dysfunctional families at little bit more crazy and the Stones are no exception.

#4 ~ Elf (2003): “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” - Buddy the Elf, the cheeriest sweetest elf to ever hit New York City.

#3 ~ Jingle All the Way (1996): As a kid, this was a great movie. As a parent, I now identify more with dad who is fighting tooth and nail to get that one special gift for his kid on Christmas day. And of course, hilarity ensues.

#2 ~ The Santa Clause (1994): Have you ever wondered what happens if Santa falls off the roof? Wonder no more—The Santa Clause has all the answers and more. And remember, it’s all in the fine print.

#1 Miracle on 34th Street (1994, 1947): Even as a kid I believed this Santa was perfectly cast. This movie, no matter my mood, makes me feel warm and happy. And reminds me that I believe, I believe, I believe. Because like Kris Kringle says, Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind.

Here’s to a joyous Holiday season!
