Friday After Next

It's Christmastime in the 'hood, and cousins Craig and Day-Day have finally left their parents' homes and moved into their own apartment. But a ghetto grinch breaks into their crib and steals all their presents--and the rent money hidden in their stereo speakers! Craig and Day-Day's only hope of avoiding eviction before Christmas is to take jobs as unarmed security guards at a local strip mall, where they learn some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holiday season.

Starring Ice Cube, Mike Epps, and John Witherspoon.

Home Alone

$5 tickets for children 12 and under!

In one of the highest-grossing comedies of all time, hero Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has free reign over his well-appointed suburban home when his family forgets to take him on their Parisian Christmas holiday.

After a frolicking montage of junk-food eating, bed jumping, and television bingeing, Kevin matures and tries his hand at "adulting." Now the de facto ruler of his family's kingdom, he is forced to defend it against burglars, the scheming Harry (Joe Pesci) and bumbling Marv (Daniel Stern). Kevin lures the invaders through a John Williams’ scored, Rube Goldberg-esque maze of pain. By the time the villains are conquered, we are ready for the sticky-sweet family reunion and welcome the final scenes like Christmas morning.

Miracle on 34th Street

$5 tickets for children 12 and under!

Doris (Maureen O’Hara), a hard-working realist, hires Kris Kringle as Macy’s resident Santa. Kris becomes a hit with the company and shoppers alike––even Doris’s no-nonsense daughter (Natalie Wood) is won over. However, jealous co-workers aren’t so charmed by Kris’s insistence that he is the real Santa Claus, and soon he’s involved in a court battle to prove his sanity.
