Take a break from holiday shopping with a special sing-along screening of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Burton teamed with composer Danny Elfman for the animated film. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, king of Halloweentown, who is bored with the monotony of his holiday-themed town. When Jack stumbles upon the door to Christmastown, he is intrigued by the difference between the two. Inspired, Jack convinces the ghouls and goblins of his Halloweentown to take over Christmas, with twisted results. 7:30 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks.
