Streaming platforms have taken over the entertainment world, but many of us still seek that big-screen experience. And on Christmas, it’s a tradition of many to go to their local movie theater to catch a recently released feature. But are all movie theaters open on this day or only a few?

This holiday weekend has plenty of movies to select from. In fact, you may want to enjoy a double feature. Or mix it up with one movie on streaming and another in theaters. Some of these movies include Violent Nights, Babylon, and Puss in Boots: The Last WishYes, there’s something for everyone this holiday season.

Whether you want to watch a new movie or one you may have missed, we’ve got your back. Hidden Remote recently released a list of every new (and recently released) movie available this weekend.

Yes, all movie theaters are open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

Most businesses are closed on Christmas Day or follow shorter hours of operation, this includes restaurants and stores — but not movie theaters. This includes AMC Theaters, Cinemark, Regal Theaters, and other major (and smaller) chains. Now, there is a chance that select theaters will open later today or closer earlier than usual, mostly small chains, but all movie theaters is open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Which theater is closest to you? Will you be taking a trip to the movies this holiday weekend? Or, perhaps, you’ll take advantage of the many streaming platforms and stream a movie at home. I’ll be doing a little bit of both! Elf and Home Alone are my favorite Christmas movies to watch. But I will also be going to the movie theater to catch a recently released feature. It’s one of my favorite holiday traditions, and there are some great movies this weekend.
