Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal! Home Alone is returning to the Big Screen

Home Alone will be back on the big screen for a two day Special Holiday Event this month (November).


Fathom Events and 20th Century Fox are bringing Home Alone back to theaters for two nights only on Sunday, November 8th and Wednesday, November 11th. The movie will play at 4:30pm and 7:30pm local time on each of those days at participating theaters (though it has been noted that Cinemark theaters will be showing the matinee at 2pm local time instead of 4:30pm).

Tickets are now on sale for this theatrical event that will also feature a special introduction to the movie.

When Home Alone debuted in theaters 25 years ago, audiences flocked to the film making it #1 at the box office for an unprecedented four-month run. This timeless holiday classic is still the highest grossing live action comedy of all time, spawning a highly successful franchise with four sequels and three video games, and now the original film can be seen again on the big screen this November! Relive every pratfall and prank with Catherine O’Hara, John Heard, John Candy, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, and Macaulay Culkin in the role that made him an international household name.


Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Culkin) has become the man of the house overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays, but he’s not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in and Kevin’s rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!

Directed by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire) and written by John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), this beloved classic is a must-see holiday film for the whole family.

    I love this movie and it is such a classic and good to watch even if it is not the Holidays. I think it is great to have this at the theaters for a whole new audience to find out how wonderfully funny this movie is.
