Want to feel old? Home Alone, Christopher Columbus's classic (and surprisingly violent) 1990 comedy about a pre-teen kid whose family accidentally leaves him home alone (!!!) during Christmas vacation, is about to turn twenty-five. Kevin McCallister, once a cherubic Rube Goldberg wannabe with the imagination required to transform his parents' house into a giant torture chamber for the "Wet Bandits" who were trying to rob it, would now be thirty-three years old and living in a booby-trapped loft somewhere in Bushwick.
But we've got some good news for anyone who thinks that Macaulay Culkin is still the greatest thing that someone named Christopher Columbus ever discovered. In honor to commemorate this milestone in American culture, Fathom Events is bringing Home Alone back to theaters for two nights only. On November 8 and November 11, the AMC Empire 25 and the Union Square Regal 14 will be your go-to destinations to watch Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci get hilariously outwitted by a small child with an appetite for destruction.
Screenings at both theaters will be at 4:30 and 7:30pm, and tickets will cost $12.50. Be sure to hit up Fathom Events for more information.
