The pandemic continues to take its toll on our beloved traditions, including the annual Holiday Movies at the Plaza Theatre, produced by the El Paso Community Foundation Plaza Classic Film Festival and El Paso Live as part of the City of El Paso’s WinterFest.
The popular series features holiday classics, such as It’s a Wonderful Life and Elf, for free in the Plaza Theatre as part of the City of El Paso’s annual WinterFest.
The Holiday Movies at the Plaza Theatre are expected to return in 2021.
The series began in 2008, the year the first Plaza Classic Film Festival was held. From 2008-2012, Holiday Movies at the Plaza Theatre was held over one weekend each December in conjunction with the tree lighting ceremony in San Jacinto Plaza and Christmas lights parade. The movies went on hiatus from 2013 to 2015 during the renovation of San Jacinto Plaza, and returned in 2016 as part of the first WinterFest.
This year’s WinterFest from December 5-January 3 will feature virtual events only. Go to epwinterfest.com for details.
The El Paso Sports Commission will offer Christmas Cheer Drive-in Mistletoe Movies from December 4-19 in the El Paso County Coliseum parking lot. Titles include The Polar Express, Elf and Home Alone. Go to Facebook.com/ElPasoColiseum for details.
