Six-year-old Susan Walker (Mara Wilson) is sceptical of the Christmas myth surrounding Santa Claus, a trait she perhaps learned from her mother, Dorey (Elizabeth Perkins). When tasked with hiring the Santa who will pose with kids at Macy’s, Dorey enlists a man with the curious name of Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough) who claims to be Santa himself. His assertions are met with scoffs and threats of institutionalization, but a young lawyer, along with Susan and Dorey, comes to his defence.

Enjoy a cup of tea and a mince pie with this classic Christmas film at The Courtyard.
The film will be screened in the new Nell Gwynne Studio, set up with tables and chairs. The lights will be dimmed and the sound a little quieter for a dementia friendly experience.
