On the Holiday Special of Screening in Kingston, we look at movies that are perfect for the Holidays if you do not celebrate or just don’t like Christmas! Movies with snow, about the holidays or just fun to watch in December!
It’s beginning to look a lot like… well, cold weather, at least, so we’re leaning in with two hours of music about freezing and wintry weather, including the absolutely ghoulish Bobby Darrin track “Artificial Flowers,” some post-Goth from the UK, the delightful David Francey, and as always much more! Come for the music, stay for Marisa getting a little nuts with her Kate Bush impression.
