So SFist's take on the movies made you think you'd like to escape the holiday madness by going to the movies. We understand. We've been hiding from assorted shoppers and/or relatives in our local theatre for years -- sure, the floors are stickier than they would be at home, but at least we're not getting a headache from smiling and biting our tongue.

May we suggest taking in a flick at a movie theatre that doesn't offer the typical gigaplex experience? We personally have very happy memories of spending December 26 at the Grand Lake Theatre. We love this theatre both for the outside and the fantasic decorating on the inside.
