“Elf” (2003) at the Cerrito on Thursday, December 16, at 7:00

Join Will Ferrell in his adventure to find his elf-roots in “Elf” (2003) at the Cerrito on Thursday, December 16, at 7:00

6ft.-3inch Will Ferrell believes himself an elf. And we believe him, too.

As critic Roger Ebert wrote, “This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece.”

The story begins when a baby (played as an adult by Ferrell) crawls into Santa Claus’ toy bag and is transported to the North Pole. There, he is adopted by Papa Elf (played by Bob Newhart), who supervises all the elves, and eventually grows to his full height, among the diminutive elves.

Still believing himself an elf called Buddy, he happens to hear that his biological father is a hard-driving New York businessman, played by James Caan. Buddy sets out to New York to meet his real father.

Complications, including much humor, ensue. They involve various superbly-cast characters, including Buddy’s love interest, Zooey Deschanel, who plays an apathetic department-store elf (on 34th Street in New York, no less), and Mary Steenburgen, who plays Caan’s warm-hearted wife. Another brilliant stroke of casting gives us Ed Asner as Santa.

This delightful soufflé was directed by Jon Favreau.

“Elf” will play only once at the Cerrito, on Thursday, December 16, at 7:00 p.m. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as the movie may sell out. All seats are $9.50. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

“Charade” (1963) at the Cerrito on Thursday, November 18 at 7:00

Join the adventure with Cary and Audrey in Paris at the Cerrito on Thursday, November 18 at 7:00!

Few thrillers create as much sheer joy and happiness as “Charade,” in which Cary Grant spoofs his Alfred Hitchcock persona, Audrey Hepburn exudes her usual magnetic charm, and Paris is as scenic as ever.

— S. F. Chronicle movie reviewer G. Allen Johnson

The plot has many twists and turns but basically concerns Audrey Hepburn as a newly-widowed woman, whose murdered husband may have stolen a quarter-million dollars, which is now missing. Then, Hepburn is pursued by an array of men, who offer their services to her, but can she trust any of them? The fascinating actors portraying these men include Walter Matthau, James Coburn, and George Kennedy. And of course, Cary Grant, with a particularly slippery identity and chemistry to burn.

It was the only movie to star Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn together.

Director Stanley Donen’s homage to Alfred Hitchcock broke the box office record at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Do yourself a favor–come and enjoy.

“Charade” will play only once at the Cerrito, on Thursday, at 7:00 p.m. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as the movie may sell out.
