Downtown’s historic theaters are without question one of the most unique movie-going experiences to be had in L.A. When you see a film in one of these grand theaters, the experience is a powerful reminder of just how big of an event it was to go out for the night and see a movie. And if you’ve never been to any of these theatres yet, now is your chance! The Los Angeles Conservancy is hosting a screening of Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” at the Orpheum Theater (1926) on Broadway.
This 1993 stop-motion animated feature, produced and co-written by Tim Burton, is a unique holiday treat. To most kids—and their parents—there couldn’t be two holidays more different than Halloween and Christmas. Enter Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town. Weary of his year-after-year production of frightful witches and werewolves for his town’s residents, Jack wanders away one day, stumbling on a portal that leads to a very different place: Christmas Town!
Bonus Musical Attractions (subject to change)
Acclaimed theatre organist Dean Mora will perform pre-show holiday music on the Orpheum’s Mighty Wurlitzer organ, and the Sound Stage Barbershop Quartet will sing carols around the theatre.
