Harvard Film Archive's Vintage Holiday Show

Short films straight from the Harvard Film Archive vaults will have you in the Christmas spirit with their winter-related themes and family friendly topics. This year's films—reminiscent of the times when you could rent a 16mm film and projector from the library—used to be shown at public libraries in the Boston area and were created between the 1950s and 1980s. The night of vintage viewing features titles like "The Night Before Christmas" and "A Charles Dickens Christmas: From the Pickwick Papers" with lengths of 5 to 22 minutes.
