Mal Vincent recalls the time he interviewed, a then 10-year-old, Macaulay Culkin about his film Home Alone that would become a holiday classic. Word was that the child actor wasn’t friendly in interviews, but Mal tells us how he found a way to the boy’s heart.

The film features John Williams’ award-winning score and it will be performed live-to-picture by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra with the Governor's School for the Arts Orchestra in partnership with Seven Venues and The Virginia Arts Festival, on November 26, 2016 at Chrysler Hall.
