"Have yourself a merry little Christmas …” So sings Esther Smith (Judy Garland) to her little sister Tootie (Margaret O’Brien) in Vincente Minnelli’s endlessly enchanting, luscious Technicolor treat.

Minnelli’s sublime evocation of early 20th-century America recounts one year in the life of the Smith family of St. Louis as they eagerly anticipate the coming World’s Fair—with romance, heartbreak, and holiday celebrations along the way. One of the all-time great musicals balances heart-warming nostalgia and heart-tugging melancholy, never more poignantly than in Judy’s plaintive rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” 

Meet Me in St. Louis is arguably Vincente Minnelli’s masterpiece, Judy Garland’s greatest screen achievement and the very best cure for the winter blues.

These screenings make cinema more accessible by providing an inclusive experience for people living with dementia, their families and carers. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are available from 10.30am, with the film at 11am. QFT is committed to the Age-Friendly Belfast Charter.
