With Christmas fast approaching, several local theatres are scheduling holiday classics. The American Cinematheque screens our personal favorite, Tim Burton’s stop-motion masterpiece THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica on Friday, December 19 at 7:30pm. For those of you who think of this as a Halloween film, here is a chance to re-assess your opinion; Christmas is actually a far more appropriate time than the traditional Halloween screenings afforded by Disney at El Capitan Theatre every year. The Aero Theatre is located at 1328 Montana Avenuem Santa Monica, CA 90403. Call (323) 634-4878 for more information or check out their official website.
