Elf may not be my favorite modern Christmas movie — that’d be Arthur Christmas, of course, as I explained on CBC’s Here and Now the other day — but it’s a fine one, packed with lovely little moments and a Will Ferrell performance that’s madcap without ever tilting into cloying.
Why am I telling you this? Because it’s this month’s designated NOW Free Flick Monday at The Royal, and you should come and watch it with us tonight!
You know the drill: Doors at 6:30 pm, I start my introduction at 7:30 pm, first hundred guests get free popcorn and everybody gets a free movie. (All the details are on the Facebook page.) Come on down! It’s Elf! You know you love it!
