COMMUNITY INVITED TO VIEW HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS AND THE POLAR EXPRESS
The New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) and Spectra by Comcast Spectacor, the providers of Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Atlantic City’s historic Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center, have announced a free holiday movie screening at Boardwalk Hall’s Adrian Phillips Theater on Saturday, December 17 at 1 p.m. The local community is invited to view a double-feature of both How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Polar Express.
Parking in the Boardwalk Hall Garage will be free and doors to the event will open at 12 noon. Santa will be on-site to meet families through 2 p.m. Advanced reservations are recommended and can be made online at BoardwalkHall.com.
In addition to the two movies, all in attendance can visit the third annual Deck the Hall- Festival of Trees display, a season-long charitable event in the Boardwalk Hall lobby facing the Atlantic City Boardwalk that is free and open for the public. The event is intended to generate funds for Court Appointed Special Advocates – CASA For Children of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. All proceeds help recruit and train more volunteers to serve children living in the foster care system in Atlantic and Cape May counties. The event is open during all hours which Boardwalk Hall is open.
“During this season of giving, the CRDA is happy to support this community event,” said CRDA Executive Director John Palmieri. “We hope the residents of Atlantic City enjoy these wonderful holiday films in the historic Adrian Phillips Theatre.”
“Spectra has a proud tradition of community investment and a commitment to making a difference,” said Spectra’s Fran Rodowicz, General Manager of Boardwalk Hall. “We invite everyone to bring your kids down and celebrate the holidays with us this season at Boardwalk Hall.”
Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center are owned and funded by the CRDA.
