Christmas Day Moviegoers?

We have pretty much made a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas Day, since there are no more kiddies in the family to help make the occasion so much more fun.

The big Christmas Day Releases are being advertised.....anyone else out there planning to go to the movies on Christmas Day? What are you planning to see?

I think we've agreed to see The Bucket List.

I went to see Elf a few years ago and will definitely see Trek XI next year.

This year, I'm not too sure. If anything, it'd be Juno, Walk Hard, or There Will Be Blood (which probably won't even hit near me until January).

Walk Hard looks good. I love their advertising campaign

It wasn't a firm tradition, but sometimes if I'm home for Christmas and there are other random relatives around, we'll hit a flick Christmas night.

I've never done that, I've always wondered if it's crowded or deserted. I assume more crowded that night.

I went on Thanksgiving once, it was crowded.

Either "Walk Hard" or "Sweeny Todd" if we don't get to it on the weekend.

I've gone on Christmas day about 6 times. Some of them wer4e crowded, some there were just a handful of people in the theatre (which I like). The earlier in the day the less crowded it seems to be. It's kind of a crap shoot though depending on the geographic area and how many die hard moviegoers in that area who make it a habit of going to a movie on that day.

I was thinking of asking if anyone would want to see either of those.

Both heartwarming holiday films.

I've gone a lot more times on Thanksgiving than I have on Christmas. of course I can't remember what I saw, but was surprised at the amount of other people doing the same. I guess after meals you either nap or go to the movies

We have been going to the movies on XMAS for 15 -16 years now. There are more and more restaurants open now so we usually go to an afternoon flick and then grab a bite afterwards.

Most of the big holiday releases are out this weekend or earlier this year, as for movies actually coming out on Christmas, I'll be checking out Denzel Washington's new directorial effort The Great Debaters.

The Great Debators actually looks pretty good too, I was watching some reviews and interviews with some of the stars of that movie. I might want to see that one over the holidays as well!
