Holidays at Whitaker Center

Let Whitaker Center be your home for the holidays this winter!

With events in all three Whitaker Center venues, we’ve got plenty of holiday fun to unwrap. Holiday films, seasonal performances, and our annual Holiday Trains & Trees exhibit come together to give your family a trip they’ll never forget.

Holiday Trains & Trees

Holiday Trains & Trees annual exhibit is the perfect indoor activity for the whole family to enjoy. With over a dozen spectacularly decorated trees, several working model train sets, decorations and lights, Whitaker Center is the winter wonderland you need. This all ages event is included with Harsco Science Center admission. On display NOW through January 1, 2017.

 Holiday Film Series

Experience an old favorite like never before or start a new tradition with our Holiday Film Series. From black and white classics to new 3D experiences, there’s something for everyone each weekend. Our Select Medical Digital Cinema, with a four-story screen and immersive sound quality, is the only way to see your holiday favorites. Check back soon for film series movies and showtimes!


 Holiday Performances

Sunoco Performance Theater becomes a winter wonderland each December with performers and musicians guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit. Wizards of Winter have rocked the stage with their unique blend of holiday rock. A capella brought the house down when Straight No Chaser brought their talent and humor to the stage. Central Pennsylvania's Youth Ballet has shared the magic of The Nutcracker. Check back for show announcements for our holiday season!
