All we want for Christmas is a Red Ryder…OK maybe not that, but we do love seeing holiday classics under the stars The Tampa Theatre brings back parkCinema on both November 19 and December 16.

On November 19, the organization will screen Arthur Christmas under the stars. The screening is free and open to the public, and will take place in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park as part of the City of Tampa’s Winter Village.

Then, on December 16, they’re screening Disney’s A Christmas Carol. The Dickens’ classic is brought to new life through dazzling animation with the ever enigmatic Jim Carry voicing Scrooge, in addition to more iconic characters.

Both screenings begin at 7pm in the park. Make sure to grab some hot cocoa from Winter Village to pair with the showings.
