** This evening is the third of a three-part Dickensian film & dine event**
Enjoy a Dickensian 3-course meal before settling down to watch the 1951 classic film Scrooge, A Christmas Carol.
Crotchety Victorian businessman Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) has no use for festivity, even at Christmas. After resentfully allowing timid clerk Bob Cratchit (Mervyn Johns) to have the holiday to spend with his loving wife (Hermione Baddeley) and family, Scrooge is swept into a nightmare. The ghost of his late partner, Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), appears, warning that Ebenezer will be visited by three more spirits who will show the coldhearted man the error of his parsimonious behaviour.
Although there will always be dispute over which is Alastair Sim’s finest screen performance, there is little doubt as to which is the best known. This is the definitive characterisation of Dickens’ notorious curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge directed by Brian Desmond.
Dinner is served at 6.30pm before the film at 7.30pm. The evening finishes around 9pm.
