The bad news is Halloween is over but the good news is Thanksgiving is right around the corner and so is the Christmas season. What better way to kick off the holiday season then to go see "Home Alone." That’s right "Home Alone" is celebrating its 25th anniversary. This is a special nationwide event to celebrate one of John Hughes’ classic films. It’s incredible how many people are inspired by this film not only in the holiday season but during Halloween. John Hughes’ made fans across the country love a couple of burglars that were the perfect combination of frustration and comedic stupidity.
This isn’t the first John Hughes’ gem to be re-released in theatres as "The Breakfast Club" made an appearance not long ago back on the big screen. John Hughes is known for not only "The Breakfast Club" but "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off", "Pretty in Pink", and "Uncle Buck". Many fans may not know that the idea from "Home Alone" came from a scene in "Uncle Buck" with a very young Miles, played by Macaulay Culkin, awaiting the arrival of his babysitter while home alone with his sister. This inspired John Hughes to create an entire film based on a child being left all alone by his entire family and the adventures he faces along the way. John Hughes had a beautiful way of drawing from his own family experiences and bring them to the screen in a warm and relatable way.
This event is sponsored by Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox and it is truly a holiday classic. So enjoy this film with friends and family for the first time or have it bring back feelings of nostalgia for a filmmaker with his family inspired stories was and continues to be able to warm the hearts of film lovers.
