Business Booming for Movie Theaters on Christmas Day

Posted: Updated:

Many businesses hang up the closed sign on their door Christmas day, but for movie theaters it's a day booming with business. People flooded inside the Regal Stadium 14 at the Shops at Stonefield Wednesday afternoon.

Whether it was ‘Anchorman 2’, ‘The Hobbit’ or ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, people grabbed popcorn and enjoyed a movie for the holiday.

For some patrons, going to the movies on Christmas is a family tradition. "We celebrated Christmas this morning,” said Diana Svetch. “It's kind of a traditional thing of our family to celebrate Christmas then go to the movies."

Moviegoers say Christmas is a great day to hit the theater because so many films are newly released.
