Embrace the spirit of the season

On Saturday, December 8, Chappaqua Performing Arts Center will present an interactive movie screening of the holiday classic Elf (New Line Cinema) starring Will Ferrell.

On Saturday, December 8, Chappaqua Performing Arts Center (ChappPAC) will get in the spirit of the season with an interactive movie screening of the perennial holiday favorite Elf. The screening will offer a unique viewing of the well-loved family film by actively engaging the entire audience.

The New Line Cinema comedy, which this year celebrates its 15th anniversary, tells the story of an elf from the North Pole (Will Farrell) who learns of his true identity as a human, embarks on a journey to New York City to find his biological father (James Caan), and helps New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to inspire everyone to embrace their inner “Elf.”

“Elf is a perfect festive outing for the whole family,” said ChappPAC manager John Fanelli. “This will be an interactive screening. Think Rocky Horror Picture Show, but with snowballs!”

Audience members will receive a participation bag filled with various Elf-related items to use throughout the show. These include indoor “snowballs” for a snowball fight in the theatre, a bag of pasta, and the four major food groups which, according to Buddy the Elf, are candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup. Vendors in the theatre will offer “the world’s best cups of coffee and hot chocolate.” There will be call outs throughout the movie to further involve the audience as well as an Elf trivia contest sure to put everyone’s memory to the test.

ChappPAC’s Elf interactive movie screening is presented by the Town of New Castle, Standing Ovation Studios, and Soup’s On Entertainment. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at or by calling 914-458-5143.

The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center, recently dubbed Westchester Magazine’s 2018 Best Musical Venue, is located at 480 Bedford Road in Chappaqua, NY, just inside the gate of the former Reader’s Digest campus.
