The Element Film Series - Brews & Views - presents retro-classic film programming, tailored primarily to the tastes of film fans who grew up in the era spanning the 70s to the 90s. You can enjoy your favorite craft beers and great food from a full menu, delivered to your table, while you watch the film!
"Brews & Views" returns for our holiday screening with this contemporary comedy classic. Join us for an old fashioned Griswold Family Christmas. (However, please ensure that Aunt Bethany does not wrap up a jello mold or her cat, prior to bringing her to the screening).
***SHOW TIME HAS NOT YET BEEN DETERMINED*** as we figure out how to best accommodate the large number of people that are interested in this screening every year. Ticketing for this screening will be announced at a later date.
Come prepared to enjoy this film with friends old and new...and we promise not to hold it against you if you can't keep yourself from wishing Clark a Merry Christmas, right along with Cousin Eddie.
We will have movie trivia for door prizes, a pre-show with soundtrack music and movie poster images from 1989-1990, along with a specially selected set of movie trailers to recreate the experience of seeing this film in the theater on opening night back in 1989!
We will have the usual great food and beer you've come to expect at our screenings, but also spiked egg nog for the adults. So, everyone is sure to have a great time, no matter what your preferred holiday "spirit" is!
