It's turned into a Christmas tradition in the Tri-Cities: heading to a local movie theater to see what's the latest on the big screen.
John Starnes and his family tell us they were out on Christmas Day to watch The Hobbit. He says, "It's become a tradition for the last 5 or 6 years. We come out as a family and see a movie on Christmas day."
When the presents are unwrapped and the ham is left to a mere bone, Tinseltown on Exit 7 opens its doors for people left with nothing else to do.
Families all across the region get ready to watch their favorite movies on Christmas day... especially when there's nothing on t-v...
George McNerlin tells us, "I couldn't find any ball games on and we've been wanting to see (The Hobbit). So, i have gone to the movies on Christmas a bit."
George and his wife tell us their favorite part of going to a Christmas day movie is the small crowds..
More and more families are becoming part of this growing tradition... a relaxing day to end a busy holiday season...
We learned some of the big blockbusters this week include The Hobbitt and Django unchained.
