November 30th, 202210 Films In Theatres Christmas Day

The presents have been opened; the eggnog has been poured; and you’re ready to relax after a busy season. This holiday, after you’ve finished your family festivities, head to AMC for a flick! Here are 10 films that will be playing in theatres on Christmas Day. Learn more and get your tickets.

The Fabelmans

You know him as the Academy AwardⓇ-winning wizard behind classics like the original blockbuster, 1975’s JAWS, or the powerful historical drama from 1993, SCHINDLER’S LIST, but what do you know about the real Steven Spielberg? The filmmaker tells all with THE FABELMANS – a loosely fictionalized autobiographical film co-written by Spielberg with Tony Kushner that is so wonderfully acted and emotionally moving, it has been selected as an AMC Artisan film this year.


Violent Night

Let’s say that, on Christmas Day, you and your loved ones are in the mood to see a movie related to the season, but would prefer to try out something that deviates a bit from the traditional holiday elements. Look no further than VIOLENT NIGHT – an action-packed comedy-thriller in which the only one who can save a wealthy family attacked by mercenaries on Christmas Eve is none other than Santa Claus, played by David Harbour of “Stranger Things” fame.


Empire Of Light

In director Sam Mendes’ self-written follow-up to 1917, OscarⓇ winner Olivia Colman plays a movie theatre manager wrestling with her mental health and Michael Ward plays her employee faced with his own daily challenges with adversity in 1980s England. Also starring Colin Firth and Toby Jones, EMPIRE OF LIGHT is a stirring, beautifully shot ode to the power of cinema, but also so much more than that.


Spoiler Alert

Four-time Emmy-winning “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons channels his talents for both comedy and drama into his performance as a man who learns his boyfriend – played by Ben Aldridge – is terminally ill in SPOILER ALERT. Also starring Academy Award winner Sally Field, director Michael Showalter’s adaptation of the memoir by writer and actor Michael Ausiello is the rom-com that may be heartbreaking but also a reminder to never give up on love.


The Whale

Fans of Brendan Fraser have been pulling for the star of funny favorites like GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE and blockbusters like THE MUMMY movies to make a big comeback for years now and it looks like they may get their wish with the release of THE WHALE. His performance in director Darren Aronofsky’s new drama from A24 as an overweight recluse longing to reconnect with his teenage daughter – played by Sadie Sink – has been heralded as one of the best of the year.


Avatar: The Way Of Water

James Cameron made history in 2009 with his ambitious, technically revolutionary, sci-fi stunner, AVATAR, which became – and remains – the highest grossing film of all time with more than $2 billion worldwide. After more than a decade, the living filmmaking legend is finally inviting audiences back into the breathtaking world of Pandora with AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER – the second of five planned installments in this cutting edge franchise.


Puss In Boots: The Last Wish

After Antonio Banderas stole the show in SHREK 2 as the voice of literature’s most famous swashbuckling cat, he earned a franchise of his own that is continuing in 2022 with a follow-up to his first feature-length solo outing from more than a decade earlier. Dreamworks Animation’s PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH sees the title hero down to the last of his nine lives, which prompts him to search for a magical solution.



His stunning breakout drama WHIPLASH from 2014 and thrilling musical romance LA LA LAND from two years later made it clear that Damien Chazelle is a devoted student of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The Academy Award winner tackles that seminal era head-on in his new character-driven historical epic, BABYLON, which features a stellar, all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Jean Smart and more.


I Wanna Dance With Somebody

The world lost one of the most extraordinary talents in the history of music when Whitney Houston passed away at the age of 48 in 2012. Witness English actor and STAR WARS: EPISODE IX – THE RISE OF SKYWALKER star Naomi Ackie play the Grammy-winning songstress in director Kasi Lemmons’ aptly titled biopic, I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY.


Women Talking

Rooney Mara and Claire Foy star in WOMEN TALKING, a movie set in an isolated Mennonite colony that is dealing with a major crisis of faith after it is discovered the men in the village have been drugging and raping the women for years.

WOMEN TALKING opens in select theatres with a limited release on December 23rd.
