Sun Prairie: St. Albert The Great Christmas Production ( 6:00 pm )

“Go Sing It On The Mountain,” a new Christmas production, will debut at St. Albert the Great Church, 2420 St. Albert the Great Dr., on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m.

Showcasing the talents of the Voices of St. Albert’s choir and a host of actors, musicians, and dancers, the program will bring to life mountain village scenes and tender home scenes in the telling of the Christmas story.

“This will be a night for the entire family to share and remember,” says Cecile Gregory, St. Albert’s director of music and liturgy.

In addition to the holiday program, the parish will serve dinner immediately following the 4 p.m. Mass. Donations for the meal will support the efforts of St. Vincent de Paul and the Youth Ministry of St. Albert the Great. Everyone is invited.

 




Mary Poppins ( 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

(1964) Walt Disney's musical adaptation of P.L. Travers' children's classic about the primly perfect nanny (Julie Andrews) who uses her magical powers and common sense to straighten out the disorderly children and preoccupied parents of a household in 1910 London. Director Robert Stevenson fancifully integrates songs, dance numbers, animated characters, and marvelous special effects into the live-action story which features a bright performance by Dick Van Dyke as a Cockney worker who also does a comic turn as a bank president. Entertaining family fantasy. (A-I -- general patronage). (G -- general audiences). WKOW (ABC)




My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 ( 7:00 pm - 8:35 pm )

(2016) The close-knit Hellenic family featured in the 2002 original -- loving, clingy, earthy and in your face at all the most inopportune moments -- returns in this romantic comedy, but without the zest of that first outing. The problem is not so much the ambling plot, which involves marital strains between star and screenwriter Nia Vardalos' self-sacrificing character and her husband (John Corbett) as well as a technical glitch requiring that her long-spliced parents (Michael Constantine and Lainie Kazan) go through a fresh wedding. The real difficulty is that Vardalos only manages the occasional adept gag, while director Kirk Jones can do little with the rest of the project. As a result, the story comes down to a few pithy quotes interspersed with half-hearted physical comedy that has the taste of stale moussaka. Sexual references and light banter. (A-III – adults). (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13). HBO (cable)

Columbus: Cottage Grove KC Pancake Breakfast ( 8:30 am - 11:30 am )

The Cottage Grove Knights of Columbus will sponsor an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast on Sunday, Dec. 11, with serving from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at St. Patrick Church, 434 N. Main St. The breakfast will feature pancakes, French toast, Canadian bacon, eggs, and biscuits and gravy. Donations will be accepted with proceeds supporting Priests for Our Future and the Cottage Grove food pantry.

 




Three Godfathers ( 9:00 am - 11:00 am )

(1948) After robbing a bank, an outlaw trio (John Wayne, Pedro Armendariz, and Harry Carey Jr.) pause to help a dying woman (Mildred Natwick) deliver her infant son on Christmas Eve, then take the babe with them as they are pursued across a desert wasteland. Dedicated by director John Ford to Western actor Harry Carey Sr., the story may be unabashedly sentimental and the action romanticized, but its lyrical images and religious resonances celebrate the myth of the Old West and its rugged heroes with good hearts. Off-screen suicide of one of the principals. (A-II -- adults and adolescents). TCM (cable)




Secretariat ( 10:30 am - 1:30 pm )

(2010) The true story of the 1973 Triple Crown winner, arguably the greatest racehorse of all time, comes to the big screen in a film that is both thrilling sports adventure and moving family drama. Secretariat's owner (Diane Lane) is a housewife who returns to her horse-farm roots and gambles everything on the big red equine. As she makes her mark in an all-male world, she battles prejudice and the skepticism of her family, but she never loses hope in her dream. At her side are a bossy assistant (Margo Martindale), an even more domineering trainer (John Malkovich), and a gentle-hearted groom (Nelsan Ellis) whose spiritual nature provides an affecting undercurrent. Unencumbered by any really objectionable elements, this exuberant and inspirational cinematic champ can be cheered on by a wide audience. Some tense emotional moments and heated arguments. (A-II -- adults and adolescents). (PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children). Lifetime (cable)




Milwaukee: Cathedral Advent Lessons And Carols ( 5:15 pm )

A free-will offering benefiting Catholic Relief Services will be taken.

Frozen ( 7:00 pm - 9:04 pm )

(2013) Animated musical, loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale The Snow Queen and directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. The new queen (voice of Idina Menzel) of a mythical kingdom accidentally unleashes her power to create ice and snow, causing an eternal winter. She retreats into exile, but her princess sister (voice of Kristen Bell) is determined to find her and undo the spell. Joining the younger royal's epic odyssey are an amiable mountain man (voice of Jonathan Groff), his silent reindeer sidekick, and a comedic snowman (voice of Josh Gad). This good-natured film, suitable for all but the smallest tykes, who might be frightened by its storm sequences, has something for everyone: Broadway-style show tunes, thrilling adventure, gorgeous visuals, cute-as-a-button characters, and a nice message about the enduring bonds of family. There are even a few respectful religious overtones likely to please believers. A few mildly perilous situations, a bit of slightly gross humor. (A-I -- general patronage). (PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children). KNOW (ABC)

Patterns ( 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm )

(1956) Thoughtful drama in which a callous corporation head (Everett Sloane) tries to force an aging executive (Ed Begley) to retire by bringing in a younger man (Van Heflin). But the newcomer has his own ideas about what's best for the company. Adapted by Rod Serling from his teleplay and directed by Fielder Cook, the result is a credible picture of conflict in the executive suite as corporate greed and bottom-line policies are challenged by a more human style of business management. Unlikely fare for children. (A-I -- general patronage). TCM (cable)

Fargo ( 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm )

(1996) A debt-ridden Minnesota car dealer (William H. Macy) hires two thugs to kidnap his wife and split the hefty ransom her wealthy father would pay, but all goes horribly awry, resulting in several murders doggedly investigated by a small-town chief of police (Frances McDormand). Finding black comedy in this loosely fact-based tragedy, filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen chillingly depict earnest small-towners caught up in shocking violence, although justice eventually prevails in the unlikely form of a folksy, very pregnant police officer. Recurring gory violence and much rough language. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling). (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). Showtime (cable)

The Song Of Bernadette ( 7:00 pm - 9:45 pm )

(1943) Durable adaptation of the Franz Werfel novel about Bernadette Soubirous (Jennifer Jones), the French schoolgirl who in 1858 saw apparitions of Mary at a grotto near Lourdes but news of this is initially discredited by her stern pastor (Charles Bickford), the town prosecutor (Vincent Price), and an envious teacher (Gladys Cooper).

(2010) This appealing, seamless blend of the best elements of both romantic comedy and inspirational sports films charts the triangular love story of a hardworking physical therapist (Queen Latifah), a professional basketball star (rapper Common) and the attractive but shallow material girl (Paula Patton) who is both her "godsister" and his fiancee. Director Sanaa Hamri and screenwriter Michael Elliot use the lightest of touches to create a warm, likable environment and convey a message about relationships founded on enduring values. Probably acceptable for more mature teens. A single use of rough language, an implied premarital encounter. (A-II -- adults and adolescents). (PG -- parental guidance suggested.

(1958) Lyric version of Ernest Hemingway's story of an aged Cuban fisherman (Spencer Tracy) who has gone three months without catching a fish, then lands a giant marlin after an exhausting two-day battle, only to lose it to swarms of hungry sharks. Director John Sturges' handsome, if studio-bound, picture on the theme of man vs. the elements features a compelling performance from Tracy, though the cultural context is weak and the fisherman's interior reflections tend to platitudes. The ferocious shark sequences may frighten youngsters, but the portrayal of the old man's grace in coping with adversity is for all. (A-I -- general patronage). TCM (cable)
