Nothing says Christmas like…HOLY COW! Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) is sponsoring a free showing of the holiday classic Home Alone at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, at the Kiggins Theatre. This is one in a series of Disaster Movie Nights (tagline “Lights, Camera, Disaster!”) hosted by CRESA to raise awareness about disaster preparedness…while having a bit of fun and munching on really good hot buttered popcorn. Home Alone isn’t exactly a disaster movie (unless you’re the ill-fated burglers who want to break into Kevin McAllister’s house) but it is good fun and—in case someone really does try to break into your house—you might want to note that nifty trick with the iron.
It’s hard to believe, but 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the film’s original release. It stars Macaulay Culkin as McAllister, plus hilarious turns by Daniel Stern, Joe Pesci, Catherine O’Hara, John Heard, and Kieran Culkin. The movie, which was written by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus, is rated PG and has a running time of one hour and 43 minutes. The Kiggins Theatre is located at 1011 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for this film. The movie is free, but be sure and thank the Kiggins by purchasing something yummy from the concession stand in the lobby, or something festively alcoholic from the gorgeous Marquee Lounge upstairs.
