Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center will host a very special 25th Anniversary screening of the 1990 holiday classic Home Alone on Tuesday, December 22nd at 7pm.

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home


Tickets for this one-time screening are $10 for adult, $5 for children or you can see the holiday screening AND help support the effort to bring back the Newport Skating Center to Downtown Newport with the Don’t Stay Home Alone Ticket Package!
