35mm presentation - Cold-hearted TV exec Bill Murray is about to discover the true meaning of Christmas -- the hard way. This wild, woolly spin on Dickens's A Christmas Carol sees Murray visited by three high-spirited spirits … and while there are laughs aplenty, Murray's reformation and redemption are immensely powerful. With hilarious support from John Forsythe, Karen Allen, Carol Kane and others, Scrooged is a modern Christmas classic.
