The Cinematheque again caps off the year with some of the funniest and most sophisticated films ever to hit the big screen, beginning with two holiday-themed features. Sparks fly when legendary director Ernst Lubitsch pairs Margaret Sullavan and James Stewart in THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, in which they play clerks who can’t stand each other in person but fall in love as anonymous pen pals. In CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT, celebrity homemaker Barbara Stanwyck has a secret to hide - she can’t cook and doesn’t own a home.

Town Center 5 on Dec 28th

An Indian cop movie that will be totally crazy.

"Simmba is an orphan from Shivgadh from where our beloved Singham was born and raised. Contrary to the philosophies of Singham, Simmba believes that a Corrupt Officer's life is an ideal life which inspires him to become one. While Simmba enjoys all the perks of being an immoral and unethical Police Officer, a twist in the tale transforms him and forces him to choose the righteous path."
