Hope you have started marathoning your favorite Christmas movies! If you haven’t already, Hopewell Theater is here for you. They present several classics in their next Holiday Film Fest.

Tickets can be purchased on the theater website. According to their Instagram, they are waiving the $ 5 COVID impact fee.
The schedule is as follows:
The Polar Express
Saturday December 18 at 1 p.m.
I’ve never had the chance to see this one on the big screen, but I imagine it’s a wonderful movie to see in super format. Prepare your hot chocolate!
A Christmas story
Saturday December 18 at 4 p.m.
A Christmas story? In theaters? Oh fffuuuuuudddgggeee!
(But I didn’t say “fudge”)
How the Grinch stole Christmas
Sunday December 19 at 2 p.m.
To clarify, they show the 2000 live-action remake with Jim Carrey as the Grinch, Taylor Momsen as Cindy Lou Who, and Christine Baranski as the insanely horny neighbor.
Sunday December 26 at 2 p.m.
Make sure everyone knows the * real * Santa story if you take the whole family to see this one.
It’s easy to forget the sad story the character of Phoebe Cates tells, but it does contain Christmas spoilers … if you know what I mean.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Sunday December 26 at 4:30 p.m.
I know, I know, it’s not Christmas, but it’s still a lovely movie. Enjoy the comedic greatness of Steve Martin and John Candy.
Wednesday December 29 at 7 p.m.
Good luck not to quote this movie for the rest of the week, almost every line is a gem.
Buddy the elf, what is your favorite color?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Thursday December 30 at 7 p.m.
What a great way to end the cinema marathon. Don’t worry about the extra holiday pounds, you’ll laugh at the Griswolds so much it’s practically a workout.
Please note that due to COVID-19 security protocols, masks must be worn in the building.
