Wherethe Rotunda Cinemas, 711 W. 40th St., Baltimore, MD 21211

The story: A lonely foster child (Sophie Bolen) finds a lost, injured rabbit (Rumple) in the woods on Christmas Eve. The rabbit is nursed back to health by the child under the supervision of the “bunny lady” (Florence Henderson), who runs a rabbit rescue in an old barn behind her Michigan farmhouse. Both the rabbit and the young girl learn about love and belonging.

The buzz:  In early 2011, The Christmas Bunny was awarded the Pearl Award by the International Family Film Fest.  The Pearl Award is given to the film that “best exemplifies the purity and enduring strength of the family bond.”

Movie Tickets

This film presents companion rabbits in a very positive light, and contains a lot of really good husbandry info that (with the exception of lifting rabbits by scruffing) is very much in line with what HRS teaches. This event will be very kid-friendly and family-friendly.

The end of the movie will contain two public service announcements: one to promote the fostering/adoption of children who need homes, and the other to provide info about companion rabbits.

We will also be selling DVDs for $15 at the movie screening and afterwards.

Also, at the screening we will have available the 2012 Missouri HRS Rabbit Rescue Calendar for $12. Both the DVD and calendar will also be available for mail order by check or PayPal through our website. $5 shipping per 2 items.

As well as the usual movie concessions sold by the theater, we will be selling homemade muffins, baked goods and hot drinks (coffee, tea, cocoa, cider). The proceeds from these sales directly fund our work since dedicated volunteers will be doing the baking and selling.

If you are still looking to buy gifts for the rabbits (and humans who love rabbits!) in your life, please know we will have items for sale guaranteed to please both.

If you participated in our Uncle Ralph’s Cookie and Candle Fundraiser this year, your order will be available for pick-up after the event in the Rotunda Parking Lot. If you’d still like to order cookies or candles, please email by Friday, November 25, 2011.
