Your choice to spend the holidays on the island will no doubt be rewarding and memorable. Once the turkey or ham or whatever feast is consumed and the presents are opened, what do you do with the rest of Christmas Day? Well, the traditional dinner and movie is always a sure bet for a great time with family and friends.
Finding a movie you will enjoy should not be hard since several are opening on Christmas Day and there are two excellent theater venues with stadium seating near the beach. One is on Hwy. 59 in Gulf Shores at Pelican Place shopping center at Cobb Pinnacle 14. The other venue is in Orange Beach at Rave Motion Pictures at The Wharf (right beside the Ferris wheel - you can't miss it).
