Arthur Christmas in 3-D


A 3-D film by Aardman Animations

Preceded by a reception with cookies and holiday drinks from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Museum café

Dir. Sarah Smith. 2011, 97 mins. Presented in Dolby Digital 3-D, courtesy Sony Pictures Animation. With James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Will Sasso, and Jim Broadbent. A holiday treat from the renowned Aardman animation studio, teaming up with Sony Pictures Animation, Arthur Christmas at last reveals the incredible, never-before-seen answer to every child’s question: “So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?” The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic—a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero: Santa’s youngest son, Arthur. Ages 10+
