The family favorite and holiday classic returns to the big screen! Whether you watch it every year or want to enjoy it for the first time, the Academy Award-winning Miracle on 34th Street is a must-see for all ages.
When a nice old man from a retirement home becomes the favorite Santa at Macy’s, even a cynical little girl (Natalie Wood) slowly becomes a believer—not just in the spirit of Christmas, but in the ability of all of us to be kind and generous. As this Santa brings rival retailers together, he’s hauled off to the loony bin and has to go to court to prove he’s the real Kris Kringle, making for a raucous courtroom climax. Edmund Gwenn won an Oscar for his role as the most genuine Santa on screen. The original is still the best, full of real New York City locations. Although Gimbels Department Store may be a thing of the past, Macy’s and its annual Thanksgiving Day parade are still here and more famous than ever!
