Popcorn Flicks in the Park
The Santa Clause
This film is a part of our Popcorn Flicks series, which takes place in Central Park, Winter Park once a month and it’s FREE and open to the public!
This film is preceded by How The Grinch Stole Christmas:
Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville, where the Whos live. All the Whos love Christmas, yet just outside of their beloved Whoville lives the Grinch, a nasty creature that hates Christmas, and plots to steal it away from the Whos, which he equally abhors. Yet a small child, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriend the Grinch. When he tries to wipe out Christmas for the cheerful Who-villians, the Grinch discovers that maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more! Magnificently narrated by Boris Karloff and animated by cartoon legend Chuck Jones, it’s an award-winning Who-roast-beast-feast of a holiday classic!
The Santa Clause:
Divorced dad Scott (Tim Allen) has custody of his son (Eric Lloyd) on Christmas Eve. After he accidentally kills a man in a Santa suit, they are magically transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa’s place before the next Christmas arrives. Scott thinks he’s dreaming, but over the next several months he gains weight and grows an inexplicably white beard. Maybe that night at the North Pole wasn’t a dream after all — and maybe Scott has a lot of work to do.
