Event Notes


As we head back towards a somewhat-normal holiday season, we're bringing some of the greatest holiday classics to the big screen with the HAT Classic Christmas Film Series.

Join us for: Scrooge (1951) starring Alastair Sim!

Ebenezer Scrooge, a curmudgeonly, miserly businessman, has no time for sentimentality and largely views Christmas as a waste of time. However, this Christmas Eve he will be visited by three spirits who will show him the errors of his ways.

It's not the Christmas Carol we're used to at the HAT, but it's a classic for a reason and for the first time ever, we'll be screening this epic Christmas tradition on our big screen, the way it was intended to be seen.

One night only - December 21st at 7:00PM

Admission only $5 plus HST - popcorn not included!

Book your seats in early to ensure admission. May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white!

COVID-19 Protocols:

Please note: Protocols may be updated to reflect current NS protocols

We are very grateful to have had such low cases of COVID-19 in Cape Breton, however, it is essential that we do not become overly relaxed or complacent. We will be complying with all provincial and federal recommendations and guidelines (and then some!). Please be advised that protocols could change at any time pending provincial order or increased risk.

Starting October 4th, the NS government has outlined that all patrons must be able to show proof of double vaccination for COVID-19 in order to be admitted. Hand sanitizer will be required upon entry. Masks will be mandatory upon entrance and throughout performance, with the exception of when eating or drinking. All facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between performances.

We are committed to keeping our audience, staff, and artists safe and secure. If you have any feedback or concerns, please feel free to contact us at:

Thank you so much and see you soon at the HAT!
