Missouri University of Science and Technology will offer a screening of the classic Warner Brothers animated cartoon “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. The film will be shown in Leach Theatre of Missouri S&T’s Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo., as part of the Leach Theatre Family Film Series.
The 1966 cartoon special was directed by Chuck Jones and is based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name. It tells the story of the Grinch, a bitter, cave-dwelling creature with a heart “two sizes too small,” who attempts to steal Christmas from the merry and warm-hearted Whos. Boris Karloff narrates and voices the Grinch.
Admission is $2 per person. Tickets will be available at the Leach Theatre Box Office beginning at 10 a.m. that day.
Children will have an opportunity to shop for gifts for family and friends for $1 each at Santa’s Workshop and to see Santa following the film.
