After the gifts have been opened and bellies are full, what does your family do on Christmas? Recently, flocking to the movies has been a common Christmas Day activity that it is now considered tradition. If you haven’t yet ventured to the movie theater during the holidays, you might be wondering what the appeal is. This guide explores the reason behind the tradition of Christmas movie-going.
Why Americans Go to the Movies on Christmas
It’s a Family Activity
When the kids are out of school and parents are off work, families suddenly have an influx of free time. This is particularly true on Christmas. Many families are looking for something to do between the rush to open gifts in the morning and the bountiful feast in the evening. Eventually, you run out of games to play, and the chilly temperatures end up driving most indoors.
Most businesses are closed on Christmas Day, so going to the movies is one of the few activities available for people of all ages. In addition to convenience, movie theaters provide low-cost entertainment and delicious snacks. You can enjoy a few hours of film with your family while munching on fresh hot popcorn. Afterward, you can spend some quality time together discussing your thoughts on the movie.
There Are New Releases
The film industry has long since taken notice of the Christmas movie-going tradition. For this reason, many studios save their hottest releases for the holiday season to attract moviegoers looking for a chance to relax. From prestigious Oscar® contenders and action-packed thrillers to fun family movies and holiday romantic comedies, you can catch various films on Christmas.
Some of 2019’s most highly anticipated hits of the season include Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Knives Out, Jumanji: The Next Level, Charlie’s Angels, Black Christmas, Little Women, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and 1917. For younger audiences, choose family-friendly films like Frozen II, Spies in Disguise, and Cats. Start a new tradition this year by heading to the cinema.
