Theatrical Events

Elf the Movie and Elfcon

When: Sat., Dec. 9 2017

There's a time to watch Christmas classics like Elf and It's a Wonderful Life while wrapped up in blankets on your own cozy couch. And there is also a time to catch the flicks with fellow fans in a public setting. First up is Elf, which screens today at 2 p.m. at the Akron Civic Theatre. The classic tale of Buddy the Elf, who heads to Manhattan to find his father, is still as funny as it was in 2003 — and this time, elf costumes are encouraged. The screening is part of Akron's ELFcon, a party at the downtown Lock 3 outdoor park. The event, which features the four elf food groups, ice skating, a holiday sing-along and putt-putt golf, runs from noon to 8 p.m. Free popcorn will be offered at the film's screening, which does require a ticket. As for It's a Wonderful Life, that classic screens at the Civic on Friday, Dec. 15. See the website for details. (Laura Morrison)
