Home Alone

2 p.m. Weekends from Nov. 9th to Dec. 21st; Daily Dec. 21st to Jan. 1st

Watch the holiday classic, Home Alone, on the four-story theatre. After bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his family accidentally leaves him behind. But will he be able to save the holidays from two bumbling would be con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern)?

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.
