TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI)- Christmas is a day to spend opening presents, eating good food and having quality time with family. But, for some the day wouldn't be complete without a trip to the movies.

Virtually everything is closed on Christmas day. But, for movies theaters everywhere it is notably one of their busiest days of the year.

It's a big day for AMC Showplace 12 in Terre Haute.

Susan Bumgardner says it's part of her family's Christmas celebration.

"It's a family tradition to come see a movie," Bumgardner said.

A crowded theater all to see a movie on the big screen. 

Sean Patterson is very excited to see the Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"I've been wanting to see it for a while," Patterson said. "I decided Christmas would be a good day to come."

Patterson brought his dad with him.

"I don't see my parents all that often," Patterson said. "So it's good to come see a movie with my dad when I can. It's a nice time to spend with family."

Taking a seat at the movie theaters, is just the place some people want to be.
