Cozy Up to a Holiday Classic
Sure, watching movies at home is nice, but there’s something even more magical about seeing Clark Griswold try (and fail) to light up the house on the big screen! That’s why each year Marcus Theatres brings back a collection of favorites during its Holiday Classics Retro Series. This year’s line-up features:
- December 6-12: “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “White Christmas” and “Elf”
- December 13-19: “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and “The Polar Express”
All films are just $6 per person. Fun fact: Marcus Theatres recently polled 11,000 of its Magical Movie Rewards members and “Christmas Vacation” was voted Nebraska’s favorite holiday classic!
