Christmas with C.S. Lewis

he Waco Hippodrome in partnership with Emery Entertainment Is excited to bring you Christmas With C.S. Lewis.

In his young adult life, famed British author C.S. Lewis believed the story of Christ’s birth was nothing more than a feel-good myth. That all changed after a particular encounter with his friend and fellow author, J.R.R. Tolkien. Although both men loved the mythology in general, Tolkien was convinced that the Jesus myth was the one true myth. That was the start of Lewis’ journey from Atheism to Christianity. From that point on Christmas, for Lewis, took on an entirely different meaning. This powerful yet intimate portrayal explores an unforgettable assortment of Yuletide recollections, stimulating a whole range of emotions – curiosity, laughter, gladness, and even some tears. Discover how that encounter with Tolkien forever changed Lewis’ life and his Christmas celebrations.
