The holiday season is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to raise a glass and savor the seasonal yum at our 1st annual “Yuletide Cinema” extravaganza in Escondido. Step into one of Southern California’s most glorious theaters at the CALIFORNIA CENTER FOR THE ARTS, ESCONDIDO. Get your seasonal groove on to our amazing DJ’s cranking out the tunes as you find strolling Christmas carolers and food trucks galore and meet our Buddy the Elf! It’s a ho, ho, ho and a belly full of holiday cocktails at the “Yuletide Cinema” celebration of everything we love about December. Make sure to explore the Center’s Winter Wonderland Festival with live reindeer, real snow, and more before the show!


Buddy the Elf, Christmas Carolers & more!
