Greens N Grains Screens ‘Joyeux Noel’

Greens N Grains and The Green Door Film Society will present a free public screening of Joyeux Noël on Dec. 27.

Joyeux Noël tells the true story of a Christmas truce among soldiers during 1914, the first year of World War I. Director Christian Carion’s Academy Award-nominated film provides an account of the true-life wartime event that offered hope for peace in mankind’s darkest hour. As the winter winds began to blow and the soldiers sat huddled in trenches awaiting Christmas care packages sent by the families, the sounds of warfare took a momentary backseat to the yearning for brotherhood and peace.

This visually sweeping film delivers a message that invites the audience to bask in the glow of communal bonfire, as enemy soldiers lay down their arms, stagger out of their trenches and sing carols together on a frigid Christmas Eve.

The screening will be held at Greens N Grains Natural Food Store and Café, where an organic dinner will be offered for $7.50 at 6 pm, before the screening at 7 pm.

Seating is limited to 28 people. For reservations call 920.868.9999 or email [email protected].

Greens N Grains Café, located at 7821 Highway 42 in Egg Harbor, is open daily 9 am – 4 pm, and until 9 pm on movie nights.
