Sure, you could watch most of these at home via a DVD or on-demand. But it's such fun to watch classic holiday movies on the big screen. Here's a listing of theaters that are showing holiday movies over the coming month. You'll also find these on the Go West Calendar. Please do double-check these showtimes before you head out, to make sure they haven't been changed since this list was compiled.
