Scrooge in New Haven
December 12, 2012
a kind of philanthropic dream, an enjoyable nightmare, in which the scenes shift bewilderingly and seem as miscellaneous as the pictures in a scrap-book, but in which there is one constant state of the soul, a state of rowdy benediction and a hunger for human faces.
In addition to being an American tradition, the showing is meant to honor the bicentennial of Mr. Dickens’s birth (Feb 4, 1812) and the 170th anniversary (Feb. 11, 1842) of his visit to the “Elm City”, shortly after his 30th birthday. The showing will be at St. Mary’s Hall at 7:15pm on Thursday, December 13.
