From director Chris Columbus and starring an unforgettable cast that includes Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Catherine O’Hara — “Home Alone” is one of those films that warm the hearts (and induces side-splitting laughter) of many a family around this time of year. And what better way is there to celebrate and enjoy the film than with a full orchestra and choir to bring it all to life?
Spend a December evening in Los Angeles with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and Angeles Chorale as they’re led by conductor David Newman in recreating this seminal 90’s comedy. And as if that wasn’t enough there will also be an Ugly Sweater contest and “Home Alone” trivia hosted by Scum and Villainy Cantina to really get you in the Christmas spirit! It’s also important to keep in mind that though the event is family-friendly, children under two years old are not admitted.
