Free Holiday Movies & Local Documentary Sponsored by Main Street Lorain, Lorain Palace Theatre & Church of the Redeemer


LORAIN: The newly formed Main Street Lorain has announced two family-friendly films and a local documentary to be shown at Lorain Palace Theatre. “A Christmas Story” will be shown Friday, December 20, 2019 and “Polar Express” Saturday, December 21 both at 7 p.m., sponsored by Church of the Redeemer, as part of Main Street Lorain’s “Home for the Holiday” celebration of downtown Lorain.


Both showings will be first-come first-served with general admission seating. Doors will open at 6 p.m. on Friday. Doors will open at 5 p.m. on Saturday as Santa will be on hand to take photos before the movie. The photos with Santa are also free, sponsored by Andrea Neal of Russell Real Estate and Steven Pallens of American Eagle Mortgage.


The concession stand will be open both nights and the new Domino’s Pizza just down the block at 445 Broadway Avenue will have one free slice available for all moviegoers on Saturday night before or after the film.


In addition, “Neon Tokyo,” a short documentary about Lorain’s own Jevon Terance will be shown at 9 p.m. both nights followed by a question and answer session with Director Reinaldo Contreras III and Jevon himself. Those interested in attending the documentary need not attend either movie; there will be entry in to the theater at 8:45 p,m. for the documentary. Those that came for the holiday movie are welcome to stay for the documentary as well. The Jevon Terance Fashion Designer Boutique, located next door to the Palace, will be open from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m. for shopping afterwards.


Adults looking for a place to go after the movies can also head to either Scorcher’s at 900 Broadway, open until 2:30 a.m. or Speak of the Devil at 201 W. 5th Street, open until midnight.


“We wanted to do something to welcome people home that have been away for a while and are back to visit for the holidays,” said Kurt Hernon, president of Main Street Lorain.  “We want everyone to come downtown to see all the new businesses and the new signs and all the lights. It’s truly magical.”
