The Savannah College of Art and Design invites the local community to the second annual SCAD Holiday Matinee, a family-friendly celebration of holiday spirit, Saturday, Dec. 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The free event, open to the public and held at SCAD’s historic Trustees Theater, 216 E. Broughton St., will feature screenings of the animated classics “Frosty the Snowman” and “Frosty Returns” beginning at 11 a.m. and the holiday comedy “Elf” at 2 p.m. Frosty’s adventures in “Frosty the Snowman” are well known to children worldwide. Frosty comes to life to weather the dastardly plans of an evil magician before he finds safety and happiness at the North Pole. His adventures continue in “Frosty Returns,” when Twitchell invents “Summer Wheeze,” a spray-can that instantly removes snow and slush. It falls to Frosty’s friend Holly to keep Frosty from melting and convince everyone that snow is a good thing.
In “Elf,” starring Will Ferrell and James Cann, Ferrell’s character Buddy stows away in Santa’s toy bag and ends up at the North Pole. The elves raise him as one of their own, but when he begins to notice how different he is from the other elves, he travels to New York City to find his birth father.
Guests at SCAD Holiday Matinee also may enjoy complimentary refreshments, singalongs of favorite holiday classics and more.
