Holidays at Gaslamp Reading Cinemas

The holidays are full of traditions such as baking cookies, singing carols, decorating the house — and watching movies. This year, you may be able to catch one of your favorite seasonal films at the Reading Cinemas in downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp District.

From Dec. 13 through Christmas Eve, some traditional holiday classics — along with some “not quite Christmas” films — will be re-appearing on the big screen.

“There’s a movie on our list for everyone” said Jennifer Deering, a Reading employee.

“The older films are classics,” Deering said. “They are absolutely breathtaking on a big screen and need to be seen on a big screen.”
