The Best Christmas Movie Events In Columbus

Christmas time is here.

But don’t stress if you aren’t feeling jolly. There are so many ways to get yourself into the holiday spirit, but for me, it usually starts with watching a few of my favorite Christmas movies. Personally, I’m a fan of Elf, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out there would be an Elf PJ party taking place this year.

It goes without saying, that particular event is geared toward children but I’m pretty sure that I don’t care.

If you’re looking for a way to see your favorite films on the big screen, look no further. Here are the best holiday movie events going on around the city!
