Some movie classics are as much a part of the holiday season as twinkling lights and generously spiked eggnog. For many, watching Flick’s tongue get stuck to the flag pole is practically inked on the Christmas calendar. Rather than catch it at home on a cable channel, how about making it a little more magical this year — for both you and the kids?
The AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring presents their annual Holiday Classics series, and it looks like they’ve added some flicks (and Flicks) to the mix . A variety of seasonal big screen favorites will play at various times throughout the week: A Christmas Story, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, and Gremlins are a few that can be enjoyed by the whole family at both matinee and evening showings. You can view the full line-up of movies and schedule here.
Tickets are $7/kids 12 and under, $8.50/adult matinee, $11.50/adult general admission 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.
