More Info IMDb

There have been dozens of versions of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" but none as darkly twisted and funny as director Richard Donner's 1988 spin on the holiday tale. Bill Murray stars as Frank Cross, a heartless TV exec who only wants the simple things in life: to make tons of money and for people to leave him the hell alone. He's is a greedy, despicable man who is actually pretty OK with everyone hating him.

But one Christmas Eve, after he's made his crew work all night on a crap TV special,  the ruthless miser gets a visit from three ghosts who try to show him the error of his ways -- with insults, hellacious cab rides to his unhappy past, punches to the face, and glimpses of a ruinous future. Featuring Murray at his swaggering, wacky '80s comic best and scene-stealing supporting characters galore SCROOGED is simply waayy more fun than any Masterpiece Theatre adaptation could ever hope to be.

And, at these special holiday Dinner Party screenings YOU too will be visited by three spirits! Whoo...whooo...whoo... Well, three delicious courses anyway -- dinner past, dinner present, and dinner future! Be there, Ebenezer!
