Starting on November 26th, the Alamo will be showing everyone’s favorite holiday movie – The Polar Express! A film that is all about the holidays, love, friendship, and joy, during such a special season. As an Alamo Winchester tradition, they will show the movie for about three weeks, so you have plenty of time to catch it on the big screen with your family. Andy Gyurisin tells us that the movie will show throughout December 17th, and that it is complete with a conductor and a golden train ticket for everyone!
The holiday cheer continues as they will start to show Elf the first week of December! For those who haven’t seen it, Will Ferrell stars as Buddy the Elf in this wonderful movie that focuses on family, togetherness, and most importantly, laughter.
We asked Gyurisin what else was coming up and he told us, "other family favorites like Arthur Christmas, A Christmas Story, Christmas in Connecticut, The Nativity Story, White Christmas, and Home Alone screen throughout the month leading up to December 25th." What an incredible line up of holiday movies to enjoy!
"Each year, we kick off our holiday programming at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Winchester with The Polar Express. Originally screened based on customer requests, the film now plays for nearly two weeks each year to packed houses. We encourage our guests to wear pajamas, and we have a live conductor at every show. With optional treats like holiday cookies, hot chocolate and coloring pages, The Polar Express draws several thousand viewers every year and is the single biggest annual event at the Alamo," said Steve Nerangis, owner of The Alamo Drafthouse - Winchester
