"Merry Christmas. Shitter was full."

National Lampoon's VACATION series is truly the gift that keeps on giving. This summer, the Action Pack took you to Wallyworld with their Quote-Along screening of the first VACATION, and this holiday season they're back with one of the most requested Quote-Alongs of all time: NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION.

Catch up with the Griswold family as Clark struggles to provide another set of perfect memories and, as usual, gets too caught up in the details to properly enjoy the big picture until it's almost too late. Amidst the more outrageous sight gags (including the electrocution of a cat as the Christmas tree is lit) the film betrays a sentimental streak, with old wounds healing and long-estranged relatives reuniting in the Griswold living room. NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION was still capable of attracting an audience five years after its release -- it was one of the top-rated seasonal TV specials of 1994, outrating even the first network telecast of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, and now for the first time ever, you can quote-along with all of your favorite lines in this special Action Pack presentation at the Alamo.

We've added an extra projection of subtitles over the movie that will come up karaoke-style, with the text showing up on screen before the characters say your favorite lines, then highlighting in yellow as it's all spoken. And we've given it the full ROCKY HORROR treatment as well, with special props for the audience and special surprises that your Action Pack host will be bringing into the theater throughout the event. It's more fun than a membership to the Jely of the Month Club, and it's all set to be your family's next four-alarm holiday emergency if you miss it!
