“Christ­mas isn’t just a day: It’s a frame of mind.” So says Kris Kringle (Ed­mund Gwenn, still the ul­ti­mate screen Santa) in 1947’s “Mir­a­cle on 34th Street,” co-star­ring 9-year-old Natalie Wood and the late Mau­reen O’Hara (who died Oct. 24 at 95). A TV fa­vorite for decades, the heart-warmer about a depart­ment store Santa Claus who claims to be the real St. Nick re­turns to the big screen in a re­mas­tered print, to pro­vide an al­ter­na­tive for movie­go­ers seek­ing charm­ing and civ­i­lized hol­i­day fare. The screen­ings in­clude in­tro­duc­tions pro­vided by Turner Clas­sic Movies. 2 and 7 p.m., Par­adiso. Tick­ets: $13.50. Visit malco. com.
