Some big screen classics are as much a part of the holiday season as gingerbread houses and generously spiked eggnog. I mean, watching Flick’s tongue get stuck to the flag pole is practically inked on the Christmas calendar. You’re probably used to catching the seasonal cinema at home on a cable channel as you fold laundry or take care of some other house chore. Well, how about making it a little more magical this year — for both you and the kids?
The AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring will present their Holiday Classics series starting tomorrow, December 17, through next Thursday, December 23. Three Yuletide movie favorites will play at various times throughout the week: A Christmas Story, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and It’s a Wonderful Life can be enjoyed by the family at both matinee and evening showings.
Timing is perfect as the frigid temps prompt us to seek indoor activities, parents are looking for things to do during Winter Break, and we’re jones-ing for a little Jimmy Stewart at the holidays.
Tickets are $6/children 12 and under, $7.50/adult matinee, $10/adult general and can be purchased in advance online or at the box office. The AFI Silver Theatre is located at 8633 Colesville Road, at the intersection of Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue, in downtown Silver Spring.
