Summer in Birmingham has been amazing, but I think it’s safe to say that a few of us are ready for the holidays (or maybe it’s just me). Thankfully, we can start the countdown to Christmas with the release of Alabama Theatre’s holiday movie series schedule.

The series will kick off on Friday, December 9, and run through Thursday, December 22 with a cartoon matinee triple feature that includes:

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Purchase tickets via Ticketmaster rather than any third-party sites to ensure validity. Most showings are $10 per ticket, except for The Polar Express showings for $12 per ticket which benefits Kid One Transport.
