DO YOU BELIEVE IN SANTA?
“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.
