Holiday Movies

Movie Watching During the Holidays

This guide contains traditional and non-traditional holiday films that can be found in the Ithaca College Library. They cover the winter holidays from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day and a bit beyond. The coverage spans from the 1920s to the 2010s. Some are sappy. Others use the season as a backdrop for satirical, biting, or sinister reasons. A few have nothing to do with the holidays except for a scene or two - but those scenes are what make those movies worth watching. 

If you're not a member of the Ithaca College community, you will have to find these films elsewhere. Almost all are available for download or purchase, but you might want to check with your local library first.
