I have shared my love for going to the movies before on GGC and I especially love watching holiday movies! I think everyone has their favorites that you just have to watch every holiday season. On Monday, I have two free tickets to go see one of my favorite holiday movies, Love Actually. I will tell you how you can get free tickets to do the same in this post and I’m also going to share with you where you can watch your favorite holiday movies in Chicago. So, grab your girls or your loved-ones and head to the movies to see your favorite holiday movies!

Regal Cinemas at Western

On Saturdays at noon, starting this weekend through December 23rd for just $5 you can watch your favorite classic holiday movies. The holiday movie schedule includes A Christmas Story, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Elf, and Gremlins. If you are a Regal Crown Club member you can receive a $5 medium popcorn and soft drink combo. For more info click here.

Late Night at Logan Theatre

If you can stay up late, the Logan Theatre is playing your favorite holiday classics the whole month of December. Tickets are $9 and their holiday schedule starts this weekend with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. You can see the complete schedule and purchase you tickets here.

Arc Light Theatre at New City

The movie theater I go to the most is Arc Light Theatre. I have their membership which is $15 a year and to me it’s totally worth it. I get $1 off each movie ticket I purchase and almost everytime I go a have a coupon for $5 off consessions or a free popcorn. I honestly haven’t paid for snacks in months. With the membership you also get free movies tickets to see a special event movie from their Arc Light Presents. This month they are obviously showing holiday movies and so I used my free movie tickets and we are going to see Love Actually. Today, when I checked my email I saw that Arc Light had sent me a coupon for a free peppermint hot chocolate to enjoy with my movie! So, sign up for their membership asap and get two free tickets. Click here to check out what else is playing this month.

Music Box Theatre

To me, it’s not Christmas if I don’t get to see It’s a Wonderful Life at the Music Box. It’s a tradition I started with my husband a few years ago and I love see this movie at the Music Box Theatre every year. This theatre is so magical during the holidays and it really gets you excited for the holdiays. It’s a Wonderful Life is playing every weekend from now till Christmas. Also, on Wedensday, December 13th you can see a great double feature, Love Actually AND Christmas Vacation. Tickets are $11 for this double feature and you can get them here.

Time Out’s Ultimate Holiday Movie Series

Time Out Chicago is hosting its first ever holiday movie series at two local Chicago breweries, Lagunitas Brewing Company and Baderbräu Tap & Kitchen. Tickets for each movie are $20 which includes free popcorn. The series kicks off at Baderbräu Tap & Kitchen on December 11th with Miracle on 34th Street. You can view the whole schedule and and get tickets here.
