"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.

There is also a dementia friendly screening of Meet Me in St. Louis on Saturday 15 December at 11am
