Best Movies In Theaters Holiday 2017

One of the best parts of the holiday season is getting together with friends and family for fun activities. Many people have family travel from out of town to visit, or they take time off work to maximize family time. But once you have all the time together, it can sometimes be challenging figuring out exactly what to do.

One of the best ways to turn up the holiday fun is to go see one of the season’s hit films. Whether you feel like laughing, crying or sitting on the edge of your seat, there is something coming to theaters that will be perfect for you. Here is a list of the top holiday movies you can catch in theaters this season.


Perfect for the oldest grandparent to the youngest child, “COCO” is Disney and Pixar’s latest magical creation. Lead character Miguel has a dream to become a musician, but his family has a ban on music dating back for generations. He travels to the mystical Land of the Dead to try to figure it all out.
