The holiday classic movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is celebrating its 30th anniversary and will be returning to select Hudson Valley movie theaters for a limited time only.

Starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Juliette Lewis, and others, the film was originally released in 1989. The movie follows the Griswold family and their attempt to host a big family Christmas. Things inevitably go haywire and we have the pleasure of watching it all unfold.

Starting December 6th and running through the 12th, AMC Crystal Run 16 in Middletown will be hosting two daily showings at 1:30 and 7:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased in advance HERE. If you're closer to AMC Palisades, there are daily showings there at 1:00 and 7:00.

Who could forget the classic dinner scene...

...and here's an assortment of Clark Griswold classics.
