Whether you don’t celebrate Christmas or you’re just tuckered out from all the festivities, here are some options for fun, holiday-free activities in Edmonton.
See a new film. Most movie theatres in Edmonton will be open for the holiday as December 25 has become a significant release day for blockbuster films. This Christmas, three features will hit the big screen: La La Land, Fences, and Hidden Figures. If you’re kid-free that day, visit one of the deluxe VIP theatres at Cineplex Odeon Windermere and lean back in one of their extra-wide, comfy seats! (Please note: Due to AGLC restrictions, the theatre will not be able to serve alcohol that day, but it still will serve many tasty alcohol-free beverages!)
Cineplex Odeon Windermere and VIP Cinemas | 6151 Currents Dr. | 780-822-4250
Watch Toruk take flight! Inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar, Cirque du Soleil’s newest performance will transport you to the visually breathtaking and colourful world of Pandora with a new story of imagination and discovery that occurs before the best-selling movie. Buy tickets here.
Toruk: The First Flight | December 22 – 26 | Rogers Place
Enjoy a meal out. Take some work out of planning a holiday meal or just enjoy a night out at a great restaurant.
