The return of Winterfest to downtown El Paso also marks the return of the Holiday Movies at the Plaza series. This year you'll have the opportunity to watch 9-holiday classics at the historic (and haunted!) Plaza Theatre beginning Thursday, November 17.

Yuletide favorites such as Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation are among this year's offerings, and they are all free to see.


Winterfest is one of El Paso’s most celebrated holiday events. Six weeks of lights, holiday spirit, and family-friendly entertainment is back starting November 19 and running through January 1.

All the signature festivities and activities we’ve come to expect are back, including the ice-skating rink -- minus the fake ice -- and San Jacinto Plaza will again be transformed into a dazzling Winter Wonderland decked out with more than 400,000 mini-lights, oversized decorations, and a 55-ft holiday tree.

In addition to the free holiday flicks, Plaza Theatre organists Richard Garven and Ken Fedorick will perform holiday music played on the original Plaza Mighty Wurlitzer Organ a half hour before each movie.

Although tickets are not required, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis so plan on getting there with enough time to find a good seat.
