It has been a few years since Hollywood has given us a truly great Christmas movie, but two of the more recent holiday blockbusters are back in theaters this month. I think it’s reasonable to call Elf and The Polar Express modern Christmas classics. Both are getting limited runs at select Cinemark theaters, including some in North Carolina.

The 2003 comedy Elf, starring Will Ferrell, runs until December 7th at Cinemark Movie Bistro in Charlotte, and all the way through December 14th at Cinemark Tinseltown USA in Salisbury. The Polar Express, released in 2004, will be showing at Salisbury’s Cinemark Tinseltown USA on Sunday, December 11th and Wednesday, December 14th only.

It’ll be fun to see both of those holiday favorites in the theater again. The Polar Express definitely benefits from the big screen. Tickets are on sale now at Cinemark.com and on the Cinemark app. To find showtimes and other participating theaters, CLICK HERE. You can see the trailers for both of those Christmas movies and many others in the streaming guide below.

How To Stream 25 Of Your Favorite Christmas Movies

What’s your favorite Christmas movie? That’s such a hard question to answer. There are so many fantastic ones that don’t get old no matter how many times you watch them. But if you want to watch them you might have a little issue-most people don’t even have cable or a DVD player anymore. So how do you watch your favorite holiday classics? Nothing kicks off the holiday season for me like Will Ferrell as Buddy the elf. And it is not Christmas Eve without watching A Muppet Christmas Carol. If you’ve recently cut the cord you may be scrambling to figure out how to stream your favorite Christmas movies. And nothing is more frustrating than trying to find the one movie you are dead set on watching. That’s why I’m here to help. I’ve compiled a list of 25 of the biggest holiday movies that you have to watch each season and how to stream each of them. We are talking Home Alone, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Elf, and more!

The good news? There is a way to watch them all. The bad news? You’ll need multiple streaming services to get them all in. Have another movie you want to watch? Let us know and we will find a way for you to see it!
