Byrd Theatre Will Re-Open With Showing of NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION

The showing takes place on December 7.

The Byrd Theatre will reopen with a showing of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, along with a Sing-A-Long with the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ and Bob Gulledge.

This year, due to the health crisis, the number of attendees is limited to 50. Tickets and concessions will only be sold online. The showing takes place on December 7.

Tickets are $10. This is higher than the theatre’s normal price, however, the venue needs more people to keep its audiences safe, and can have less people in the theatre.

They will be selling concessions, which will only be for pre-purchase with your online ticket. This will help to reduce the touch points. Just bring your receipt with you or show it on your phone.

However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark’s employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs.
