Elf 20th Anniversary

November 24 - December 23, 2023

Elf 20th Anniversary 

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear...but not in the movie theater! Celebrate the 20th anniversary of ELF with  our showtimes throughout the holiday season in Whitaker Center's four-story Select Medical Digital Cinema.

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
