Additional Show Information: "Everyone's favorite Christmas movie is here and Clark Griswold is coming to Foxwoods!

Watch the film on a 25x14 screen in the Great Cedar Showroom for an unforgettable viewing experience.

I would go to this in a heartbeat! Watching Christmas Vacation is mandatory in my house around the holidays. The holiday season is not complete unless I get to see Clark Griswold's family fail him over and over again. Of course I am a Dad so that is how I see it, you might have another take.
