MANUAL CINEMA’S CHRISTMAS CAROL: Live Stream Event!
Join us for a night of live theater —
beamed into your home from Chicago!
The Frida Cinema is proud to join interdisciplinary performance collective Manual Cinema in presenting their World Premiere online event Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol! Created for audiences of all ages, this live event is a visually and musically inventive adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Holiday classic, specially staged and produced to broadcast directly to your home!
An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to channel her late husband Joe’s famous Christmas cheer. From the isolation of her studio apartment, she reconstructs his annual Christmas Carol puppet show – over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story!
Oh, the weather outside is frightful…but it’s always cozy in your car! We are excited to announce that our Pop-Up Drive-In series will continue in December — including three classic titles that have become annual Frida Cinema Christmas-season staples!

Halloween Drive-in Movie Double Feature” experience that kicks off the show, […]
While film lovers continue to wait for movie theaters to re-open and enjoy the art of cinema with others, they can quench that thirst by enjoying the eleventh chapter of the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival, which will be held virtually this year. The festival, which has been held at The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana the last two years, usually spans three days. But this year it will be held online from September 1-7 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
With the success of the maiden voyage of our Frida Cinema 10 Hour Social Distancing Stream-a-Thon Fundraiser on March 28, 2020, we hosted our sequel Stream-a-Thon on Tuesday, May 5th, from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., for #givingtuesdaynow!

Camp Frida: I had begun an internship for the theater in July. By the time October rolled around, the event was coming up and it was looking like we would be short-handed with volunteers. Logan, The Frida’s founder, had kindly asked me if I would like to sign up for the night shift, 3am-9am. With nothing else better to do, and a desire to help out, I accepted.
