Join us on Monday nights in November and December for Holidays at the Tropic — modern and classic films celebrating Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas! The series continues with one of the definitive Christmas movies ever made, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET.
Edmund Gwenn stars as Kris Kringle, who is so convincing “playing” Santa Claus in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade that he’s asked to portray the jolly old fellow at the department store throughout the season. His portrayal is so complete that some people begin to wonder if he’s the real Santa Claus, while others begin to question his sanity. The matter ends up in court — but young Susan Walker (Natalie Wood) never wavers from her belief in Kris Kringle.
