Cinema Therapy: How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Join us for an in-person screening on Saturday, December 4 at 3 PM (immediately following Holiday Hoopla), and then a follow-up, online discussion on Saturday, December 11 at 3 PM. Or, you may choose to attend just one, or the other, or neither! Cinema Therapy is designed so you, and those in your household, can (a) enjoy each movie for what it is, and forget about the discussions, (b) get a recap of each movie during each discussion, or (c) enjoy one or both on your own time. You can currently view "How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on YouTube (for purchase), or rent it from the Cincinnati Public Library.
Wish to attend the screening, the discussion, or both? Register by Friday, December 3 at https://tinyurl.com/yyfcrrsw
