Scrooged / Brand New 25th Anniversary Digital Restoration!


There have been numerous film versions of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but none quite as hilariously twisted as this comic take on the holiday classic featuring Bill Murray at his snarky ‘80s best. In Scrooged, Murray stars as Frank Cross, a heartless, career-obsessed crank who has made the meteoric rise from the depths of the mailroom to TV network president. Cross is mean, nasty, uncaring, unforgiving and has a sadistic sense of humor – perfect qualities for a modern-day Scrooge. Our acid-tongued anti-hero wants only the simple things in life: to make a lot of money and for people to leave him the heck alone. But after heartlessly terrorizing his employees one Christmas Eve, Cross is thrown into a ghostly time warp, and before the night is over, he’ll be visited by a maniacal New York cab driver from the past, a present-day fairy who’s into pratfalls and sadistic manhandling, and finally, a ghoulish, seven-foot headless messenger from the future. Will Cross be able to change his wicked ways and avoid a lifetime of grief? Featuring a scene-stealing supporting cast including Karen Allen, John Forsythe, Bobcat Goldthwait, Robert Mitchum, Buddy Hackett and Lee Majors, and directed by Richard Donner (The Goonies, Superman), Scrooged is a holiday classic for anyone whose yuletide spirit is just a bit cracked. (Dir. by Richard Donner, 1988, USA, 101 mins., Rated PG-13) Digital
