November 28th thru December 22nd, Ohio University’s Athena Cinema will partner with the Department of Real Estate Management, Community Engagement and Economic Development to show popular holiday family films! The price of admission will be a minimum donation of one canned or non perishable food good per ticket to be donated to Athens city food pantries and other hunger relief programs. Cash donations are also accepted. As part of the event patrons will also receive a complimentary snowflake cookie to enjoy during the movie.

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog taking on the role of Bob Cratchit, the put-upon employee of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppet repertory players such as Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle weave in and out of the tale, as Scrooge is visited by three spirits who show him the error of his self-serving ways. But the stubborn, miserable old man is seemingly past any hope of redemption.
