“I get it. You’re taking me back in time to show me my mother and father, and I’m supposed to get all goosey and blubbery. Well, forget it, pal, you got the wrong guy!”

Frank Cross, Scrooged

Bill Murray is one of the most beloved comic actors of his generation, and whilst he is still earning plaudits for his more relaxed, dramatic roles these days, HOME are offering audiences the chance to revisit one of his classic roles with their A Very 80s Christmas screening of Scrooged. This New York retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol sees Murray play Frank Cross, a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature have driven away the love of his life (Karen Allen). Director Richard Donner’s version is a comically caustic take on a classic, but hey, how often do adaptations of Dickens’ festive tale feature The Ghost of Christmas Future being called a ‘pussy’?

Scrooged screens at HOME on Monday 12th December and Wednesday 21st December.
