Ignore Christmas with the greatest Jewish-themed musical of all time (screw you, Yentl). Norman Jewison's Oscar-winning film version of the smash Broadway musical follows a bunch of Russian Jews in the early 20th century as they sing about their lives and loves and TRAD-I-SHUN! Sure, it's three hours long and relentlessly beige, but they're servingkosher Chinese take-out! (And if your Christmas cinema needs demand more grit, go see the new Scorsese.) (SIFF Cinema Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave N, siff.net, noon, $20/$15 SIFF members)
