Festive Films at the Brunel Museum

A Muppet Christmas Carol

Wednesday 8 December | Doors open, 6.30pm, Film starts at 7pm

In 1843, two great Victorian masterpieces were unleashed onto the world: the Brunel’s Thames Tunnel and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Bringing the two together, we transform Brunel’s Grand Entrance Hall into an underground cinema to show arguably the best adaptation of the Dickens Classic, The Muppet Christmas Carol, with Gonzo taking on the mantle of Dickens himself.

 

The fabulous Muppets band together to teach Scrooge (Michael Caine) the meaning of Christmas in this charming adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale.

Shaping our modern society at least as much as the Brunel’s engineering prowess, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens has done more than any other book, play or film to shape the way we think about Christmas.

 

Transforming the Grand Entrance Hall into an underground cinema on selected nights, the Museum will host a special screenings celebrating the man and his work.

 

Dan Stevens stars as Dickens in he Man Who Invented Christmas, with the journey that led to the creation of the author’s timeless tale. The role of the author is taken up by Gonzo the Great in A Muppet Christmas Carol, arguably the finest adaptation of the story.
