Story by Maura Nowak, Staff Writer

On Friday, November 22, the Stonington High School AFA Club held a movie night, showing Tim Burton’s classic film “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

The AFA Club, which stands for Alliance for Acceptance, is a SHS club that focuses on LGBT+ acceptance and awareness. The movie night was free to attend, but snacks and drinks were available to buy to support the club. 

“The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a film beloved by many. Animated in stop-motion and directed by Tim Burton, it tells the story of Jack Skellington, a relatable skeleton who grows bored with his job of frightening people during Halloween and decides he wants to try Christmas. The movie also features a score by producer Danny Elfman, and several enjoyable songs to sing-along. 

The movie night was a great way for SHS students to support their peers while having fun at the same time. They were also invited to bring their family and friends.
