Another collection of holiday short films and specials from
longtime Hollywood Theatre curators Greg Hamilton and Nick Wells, now
celebrating its fifth annual installment.
The afternoon's feature will be “Jack Frost,” a Rankin/Bass stop motion where the title character becomes human for a few days because he has fallen in love.
The program will also feature “A Cosmic Christmas,” about a young boy who meets
three Magi like aliens searching for the meaning of Christmas; “The
Great Toy Robbery,” in which Santa is robbed by bandits and rescued by an
incompetent sheriff; “Mickey Plays Santa Claus," about a basket of kittens that wreaks havoc on the household of Mickey Mouse; “Ski For Two," where Woody
Woodpecker tries to steal a meal from a ski lodge by impersonating
Santa; and "A Christmas Gift” from Will Vinton studios, in which a poor boy discovers
the true meaning of Christmas.
