Film Preview: Christmas at Our House, 13 – 24 December, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

A Muppet Christmas Carol

I don’t need much of an excuse to get a Muppet-related item on this blog, so thank you to Edinburgh’s Filmhouse for arranging a short season of Christmas-themed films in December, one of which is surely the ultimate retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol: A Muppet Christmas Carol.

The cinema will be screening six films in total, beginning with the Muppets on 13 December and finishing with the Raymond Briggs Trilogy on Chrismas Eve.

In between you’ll find the Alastair Sim version of Scrooge, Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life, the-not-that-Christmassy-but-we’ll-let-them-off The Wizard of Oz and White Christmas (I’m not dreaming of one if it means the train schedules get scuppered this year), all of which should warm the cockles of even the hardest hearts this festive season.

Full details can be unwrapped on the Filmhouse website, meanwhile here’s that Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody video taking the Internet by storm…and you can add your vote to have it released as a Christmas single via Facebook.

And if that’s got you in a particularly Muppety mood, you could do far worse than set aside some time to watch one the finest Jim Henson productions ever made, A Muppet Family Christmas – if you haven’t seen it, you’ve missed a treat…just watch out for the icy patch!
