“Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer” will screen at The Park Theatre’s River Street Theatre in downtown Jaffrey on Saturday at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

“Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer” is the story of a good-hearted miniature horse (voice of Josh Hutcherson of “The Hunger Games”) who dreams of pulling Santa’s sleigh. He gets the chance to audition when a reindeer (Blitzen) retires, but troubles on his farm force him to choose between saving Christmas or helping his best friends. Jennifer Westcott wrote and directed this animated film, which also features the voices of Samantha Bee, Martin Short, John Cleese, Morena Baccarin, and Jeff Dunham. The film is rated PG.

The first 20 children (12 and under) at each screening will receive free “Elliot Reindeer Antler Headbands.” Tickets for this presentation are $5 for children 12 and under and $7 for seniors, military, students and teachers. All others tickets are $8.
