HALLOWEEN Double Feature Outdoors: Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas

Part One of the Halloween Double-Feature! Buy tickets to Nightmare Before Christmas and stay for Pet Sematary for FREE…If you dare!

1993 | PG | 76 min.
The film follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world.” When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he gets a new lease on life — he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry.

This screening will take place outdoors on the west lawn. Bring chairs, blankets, and something to keep you warm!

Film at SAC is sponsored by Brown Harris Stevens with additional support provided by the Suffolk County Office of Cultural Affairs.

Classic movie concessions will be available for purchase.

ZOOM Talk – The Social Dilemma: How Digital Media Undermines Young People’s Wellbeing & What We Can Do About It

Join Larissa Rhodes, producer of the new hit film, The Social Dilemma in conversation with Josh Golin and Jean Rogers of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. Featuring former Facebook, Google, and Twitter employees, The Social Dilemma reveals how the business model for digital media exacerbates some of the most pressing problems we face today, including misinformation, polarization, and a host of problems related to social media overuse. Not surprisingly, children and young people are most susceptible to the techniques social media companies use to keep us endlessly scrolling and posting.

Larissa, Jean and Josh will share clips from the film and discuss what we can do —  as families, communities, and a society – to keep digital media from interfering with children’s healthy development.

While it is recommended that attendees watch The Social Dilemma on Netflix prior to the December 9th discussion, it is not necessary.

Zoom Bedtime Stories: Enzo and the Christmas Tree Hunt

with Author Garth Stein

We close out the holiday season  and the year with a very special bedtime story session featuring bestselling author Garth Stein. Get the kids in their cuddly duds and get them tucked into bed to join us for an adventure with the exceptional dog Enzo, made famous from The Art of Racing in the Rain.

Denny, Zoë and Enzo head off to the tree farm, filled with noble firs, cider, and Newfoundlands—the biggest dogs Enzo has ever seen, who help haul the Christmas trees away on sleds. But as Zoë and Enzo search for the ultimate tree, the snow begins to fall and Zoë loses her way. When Enzo comes to her rescue (with a few of his perfect puppy howls), he proves that family is never far behind.

Fans will delight in Enzo’s wise personality and funny antics.
