‘Elf’ screening will benefit Latchis Arts

BRATTLEBORO — Continuing a holiday tradition, Latchis Arts presents the 2003 comedy classic Elf with admission by donation on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 4:30 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 15, at 11:30 a.m., at the Latchis Theatre.

Reminding us that the “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear,” the film stars Will Ferrell as a man-sized elf who is forced to leave the North Pole after inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community because of ungainly size.

He journeys to the U.S. in search of his true identity and manages to teach us all a thing or two about Christmas spirit. Elf stars Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Ed Asner, Bob Newhart, and Mary Steenburgen. It is Rated PG.

“This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain, and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece,” wrote Roger Ebert.

All who attend are invited to enter a special Elf raffle and to take an “Elfie” with our life-sized Elf cutout.

Admission is by donation, and proceeds benefit Latchis Arts. To learn more, visit
