Proof of vaccination is required for this event (see below)


“One of those rare holiday films that seems to transcend generations”. In this trailblazing claymation holiday hit from producer Tim Burton, Jack Skellington, the leader of Halloweentown, schemes to celebrate a very different Christmas. “[T]he visuals plus Danny Elfman’s marvelous music and lyrics are simultaneously horrifying and heartwarming”.

In the lobby, Lambe Lambe, a multiple stage small puppet theatre presentation by Paperheart puppets will precede the film with a holiday fantasy experience for all ages.

The Bardavon/UPAC film series is sponsored by The Upstate Coalition for a Fairgame, Marshall & Sterling, Herzog’s and Rondout Savings Bank.
