                    Brrrr, this weather has me wanting to stay in, sit by a fire and cuddle! However, too much time at home may lead to cabin fever so a little Master Pancake at the Drafthouse seems like just what the doctor ordered.


                    Join them as they mock all of your favorite holiday movies, including The Grinch, Frosty the Snowman, and others that are sure to have you laughing ’til your abs hurt.

                    The night will also include a audience sing-along, seasonal snacks and a little “Pudding and Butter.” Whatever that is…

                    *this event is definitely geared towards the R-rated crowd!
