National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation at the Arlington Drafthouse 12/19

Comedy Film Bucket List Meetup Members who RSVP'd get FREE ADMISSION!

Movie Starts 7:30PM - Doors Open 6:30PM

Simply one of the best Christmas Comedy of all time. This holiday comedy classic proves the Griswolds don't need to leave home to have a disastrous time. It has all the quirky mishaps only Chevy Chase could pull off, and like all good Christmas movies, ends with a SWAT team raid! This pick is inspired by a Huntington Post article about the top Comedy Christmas films... Before you kick the bucket - you must see this comedy. If you have already seen it - you must see it again... with us!

About the Movie:
(PG-13) (97 min) Chevy Chase, star of National Lampoon's Vacation and its sequel, is back as the paterfamilias of the Griswold family (including Beverly D'Angelo as his missus) to skewer the Yuletide season. Chevy mugs, trips, falls, mashes his fingers and stubs his toes as he prepares to invite numerous dysfunctional relatives to his household to celebrate Christmas. Amidst the more outrageous sight gags (including the electrocution of a cat as the Christmas tree is lit) the film betrays a sentimental streak, with old wounds healing and long-estranged relatives reuniting in the Griswold living room. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation was still capable of attracting an audience five years after its release -- it was one of the top-rated seasonal TV specials of 1994, out-rating even the first network telecast of It's a Wonderful Life.

Just RSVP and you and your guest (if you opted to bring one) get in for free and will have your name on the VIP list.

    That was a major waste of an evening. Especially when I bailed out of a DVD Scorsese festival to check out this flick (for the first time)! There must be better quality comedy flicks out there.

    I am so excited about this meet up! This is one of my favorite Christmas films. Also, I do not have to work early the next morning so I can relax and stay out late.
