The Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd. in downtown Aurora, continues to expand its ever-increasing entertainment offerings with the launch of Classic Movie Mondays.

Starting Monday, Dec. 12, for only 80 cents, movie fans can buy a fresh box of popcorn and a beverage, nestle into one of the Paramount’s 1,888 comfortable seats, and experience movies that have made cinema history from the 1940s through today.

The first flick to launch the series is the beloved holiday classic A Christmas Story. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and 80 cent tickets can be purchased at the box office at that time.

Every Monday will feature a different genre:

First Monday: Horror
Second Monday: Comedies
Third Monday: Romance
Fourth Monday: Action/Adventure

Below is the December and January schedule:

December 12 A Christmas Story
December 19 It’s a Wonderful Life
December 26 E.T. (free admission!)
January 2 The Shining
January 9 Some Like it Hot
January 23 The Philadelphia Story

One more thing: on December 26, the Paramount is treating everyone to one of the all-time greats – E.T. – on the big screen for FREE.
