FILM FEAST: CHRISTMAS VACATION
Watch in the Griswolds tackle the holidays during their CHRISTMAS VACATION! Second date added: Tuesday, December 9 at 7:15pm!
‘Tis the season with Nitehawk Cinema and Ballast Point’s Film Feast presentation of the holiday classic Christmas Vacation. As always, the screening includes delicious beverage and food menu pairings related to the film. The best part? You’ll be served each course during the specific moments that inspired the film so you can experience edible sensations while watching all of the action unfold on-screen! After the movie there will be an after party in the cafe with Christmas punch and homemade cookies!
Bad luck seems to follow Clark Griswold and his family no matter where they go or what they do. The perpetual optimist, our dear Clark (don’t you just love the young Chevy Chase?) tries to make the holidays a special family event by chopping down the biggest tree in the forest, hanging a million Christmas lights, and dealing with his obnoxious visiting family members. He does this all while banking on his holiday bonus – but will it come? This third installment of the National Lampoon Vacation film series was written by the beloved John Hughes (just like another popular holiday flick, Home Alone).
