State Theatre To Screen ‘Elf’ December 17

If you’re like us, you probably can’t wait to head home for the holidays to watch Christmas films with your folks. Luckily, the State Theatre is providing a few chances to soak in holiday classics before the semester ends.

On Friday, December 17, the State Theatre will hold a showing of the Christmas feature, “Elf.”

Elf tells the fictional life story of Buddy the Elf, who happens to be an actual human, played by Will Ferrell. After learning he is not a real elf, he sets out on an adventure to New York City to find his biological father. Throughout his journey, Buddy spreads the Christmas spirit, makes new friends, laughs, sings, and creates new holiday memories.

The show will start at 7 p.m. at the Friedman Auditorium. Masks are required while in the theatre.

Tickets for the show are $8 and can be purchased online.

If you’re searching for more (and perhaps cheaper) holiday fun, the State Theatre will also host a free screening of “The Grinch (2018)” at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 3.
