All we want for Christmas is a Red Ryder…OK maybe not that, but seeing A Christmas Story under the stars in the park sounds pretty nice. Tampa Theatre brings back parkCinema on both November 20 and November 27.
On November 20, the organization will screen The Polar Express (2004) 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 November 27, they’re screening the iconic Christmas classic A Christmas Story. We’re sure most of you can quote every line from this film by now. Catch all of your favorite moments, from the bunny costume to the statue, on the big screen.
Both screenings begin at 7pm.
