The Light Before Christmas film in the OMNI Theater:

Additionally the OMNI Theater will be featuring the holiday classic film, The Light Before Christmas. The film tells the delightful tale of young Katie and her brother Makean, who, after losing their way in a Christmas eve blizzard, are rescued by the Candleman, a wise, gentle man who invites them to his warm and cozy forest cottage and sparks their imagination with the timeless poem, The Night Before Christmas. Sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace, the children are magically transported into the story and actually become the central characters as it unfolds on the giant movie screen, complete with Santa’s visit to their home with his full team of reindeer, all assisted by Hob, Santa’s Chief Elf. Of course, no visit from Santa can end until the stockings hung on the fireplace are filled and gifts abound under the glittering Christmas tree.
