Many an argument will start at the family get-togethers this Christmas about which Christmas movie is the best. Traditionalists will say It’s a Wonderful Life. Many Hoosiers like A Christmas Story for the Indiana connection. Younger audiences love Elf and The Polar Express, while still others swear upon Christmas Vacation. Personally, I go back and forth between Home Alone and Die Hard (it takes place on Christmas Eve, so it counts).
The point is, however, we all have our favorite holiday films. Particularly this time of year, we all feel like breaking out the classics and enjoying them again. If you’ve wistfully wondered about seeing some of them on the big screen again, you’re in luck. We know of a few theaters hosting showings of several Christmas movies. Here’s the list as of now:
Latitude 360 – Latitude is first on our list because these two are taking place first. One of the 360 degrees of entertainment at Latitude on Wednesday December 10 involves Christmas movies for the whole family. Frozen is showing at 6:30 p.m. and Elf follows at 8:30 p.m. Tickets costs only $8 for adults and $5 for children under the age of 12. Latitude 360 is located at 4016 East 82nd Street in Indy.
The Historic Artcraft Theatre – Franklin’s classic theater is playing two Christmas movies on back-to-back weekends. The yuletide festivities start on December 12, 13, and 14 with It’s A Wonderful Life. Then, December 19, 20, and 21 brings Christmas Vacation to the silver screen. Showings are at 2:00 p.m. all three days and 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Check out the Artcraft Theatre Website to purchase tickets.
Danville Royal Theater – Kiwanis Family Night at Danville Royal Theater takes place on Thursday December 18. The tickets cost only $6 for viewers aged twelve and over, while kids from age three to eleven pay only $4. They are showing Home Alone for Family Night. The Danville Royal Theater is located at 59 South Washington Street.
Georgetown 14 Cinemas – If The Polar Express is more your cup of tea, Georgetown 14 Cinemas is your winner. Starting at 10:00 a.m. December 18, 19, and 20, The Polar Express will be on screen for FREE. Not only that, but Santa Clause will be making an appearance Saturday.
