Who would have imagined that the release of NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION in 1989 would be the start of a holiday tradition that would still be kicking 30 years in the future? The third in the VACATION series of films that saw Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo’s beleaguered Griswold family make their way through various shenanigans, this entry has managed to outshine even the original comedy classic, NATIONAL LAMPOON’S VACATION.
And you can celebrate the movie's milestone anniversary in the best way possible, by seeing NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION on the big screen once again for just $5 per ticket! Starting December 5, and running for one week only, you can head to your local AMC theatre to see Clark and Ellen Griswold, as well as their children, Audrey and Rusty, open the doors of their family home to a variety of relatives that range from weird to really weird.
Not only will you be able to revisit the Griswold family’s eventful Christmas, but you’ll also be able to see Randy Quaid’s legendary Cousin Eddie and his antics on the big screen again. What’s even cooler is if you happen to catch one of the select Fan Event screenings being held on the 5th, you could be going home with a new ornament to hang on your Christmas tree.
But most importantly, the theatrical revival of NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION is one of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit! If you’ve got friends and family that either love CHRISTMAS VACATION or haven’t even seen the movie before, this 30th anniversary celebration is the perfect time to really get into the mindset of the season the film simultaneously celebrates and mocks. And what's more cheerful than being surrounded by fellow fans of a comedy classic, laughing all the way to a very happy holiday.
In either scenario, the last thing you'll want to hear is "Merry Christmas. Theatre’s full." So, be sure to buy your $5 tickets to see NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION now, as it’ll only be running from December 5 to 12.
