On Christmas Day, movie theaters across the nation become quite the popular destination.

Families flock to the big screens for some quality time with the people they love. According to movie critics some of the most popular movies are released around the holidays. General manager of Marquee Cinemas, Jacob Armstrong said going to the movies on Christmas is a family tradition. He said it’s usually the busiest day of the year.

“When you’re around your family, I believe movies are an experience you go on together, there’s movies that that move you, movies that make the whole family laugh and it’s just a really good release, maybe you’re cooped up and you’ve been cooking all day and you’re kind of tired seeing one another maybe you come in here and be quiet and watch a movie together,” Armstrong said. 

Marquee Cinemas in Beckley will open at 3 p.m. on Christmas day.
