Regal Cinemas’ Christmas Movie Lineup Features Old Favorites Alongside New Titles

Now that Fathom Fright Fest and the Click or Treat promotion have come and gone, and Thanksgiving dinner has become Thanksgiving leftovers, Regal Cinemas has transitioned from spooky to jolly. With a combination of Fathom Events, Holiday Classics, and new films, there will be plenty of holiday cheer to go around on the big screen this December! Let’s see what Regal has lined up for your Yuletide viewing pleasure.

First, the Fathom Events:

Sunday, December 3 & Wednesday, December 6 – How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Sunday, December 10 & Wednesday, December 13 – A Christmas Story (1983)

This special event will only be playing for three days: Tuesday, December 5 through Thursday, December 7.

Next, the Holiday Classics:

Heads up: Tickets for these four titles are only $5 each, and if you’re a member of the Regal Crown Club or a Regal Unlimited Subscriber, you can bring one guest for FREE!

Sunday, November 26 & Saturday, December 9 – Elf (2003)

Even though it’s now too late to catch the November 26 show, you can still celebrate Buddy the Elf’s 20th anniversary in early December.

There is also one movie that is returning to theaters independently:

Thursday, December 7 through Thursday, December 14 – Love Actually (2003)

In honor of this classic romcom’s 20th anniversary, while most of the other Christmas movies in Regal’s lineup only have two showings, Love Actually will return to theaters for a full week.
