Don't be a cotton-headed ninnymuggins - come see Elf at the Avon!

There are certain traditions that signal the start of the holiday season: Christmas music in the stores (in August), people trampling each other for $200 HDTVs, the first snowfall, me complaining about the first snowfall, and watching unforgettable Christmas classics like "A Christmas Story" and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

This year, everybody's favorite theater theatre, the Avon, gets into the holiday spirit with a free screening of "Elf"!  Watch as Buddy the Elf searches for his long-lost father in the concrete jungle of New York City.  Will Buddy's new family accept his odd, sugar-fueled ways?  Will he find love with a pre-"New Girl" Zooey Deschanel?  The only way to find out is to come to the Avon on Saturday, December 7, at 10:30 a.m.!  Or you could just rent the VHS from Blockbuster.  Oh, wait...

The Avon also has some awesome Cult Classics to get you through the cold, dark months of winter and beyond:
Thursday, Dec. 5, 9 PM - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Thursday, Jan. 28, 8:30 PM - Wayne's World
Tuesday, Feb. 25, 8:30 PM - Zoolander
Tuesday, Mar. 25, 8:30 PM - Back to the Future
Tuesday, Apr. 22, 8:30 PM - The Dark Crystal
Tuesday, May 27, 8:30 PM - Army of Darkness*
