Santa Claus asks the Christmas Angel Gideon to bring some of the Christmas spirit back to a struggling blue collar family.
Venue: Coffee Saints, Little King Street, Edinburgh EH1 3SP
*Due to our temporary move to Coffee Saints in the Saint James Centre, this screening will be much more of a pop-up community cinema nature, with a smaller projected screen and no surround sound* BOOKING ESSENTIAL
Santa Claus sends the Christmas angel Gideon (Harry Dean Stanton) down to a forgotten American smalltown, to help Ginny Grainger (Mary Steenburgen), a struggling blue-collar mother, rediscover the true spirit of Christmas.
This long forgotten Disney movie from the mid-1980s seems perfectly suited for rediscovery in our current troubled times. It also stands as a fitting tribute to the versatile talents of the late, great character actor Harry Dean Stanton. Once again the GCPH do our very best to come up with a truly alternative Xmas screening.
NOTES: Features themes to do with poverty.
