After traveling across America and Europe, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) just wants an old-fashioned Christmas at home. What he gets instead is the gift that keeps on living – a surprise visit from his very odd family (Miriam Flynn, Randy Quaid, William Hickey). Shake off the Black Friday blues at the Tower with this comedy classic, November 28 at 7 pm, sponsored by Worthy Brewing, in collaboration with BendFilm.
Variety called this third installment in the Lampoon “Vacation” series “solid family fare with plenty of yocks. Chevy Chase and brood doing what they do best.”
“The informal elegance of the Tower makes it Bend’s living room,” said Ray Solley, the executive director of the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation. “So, what better place to also stage an Ugly Christmas Sweater parade right before the movie. Dare I say it? – Yule crack up!”
Other movies coming to the Tower in the coming months include “Iron Maiden Flight 666,” “The Big Lebowski,” and “20 Feet From Stardom.”
The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to be the leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and education programs that make an essential contribution to Central Oregon’s lifestyle and strengthen the community. Membership, program information and individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), by phone (541-317-0700) or online (www.towertheatre.org).
