"There's no better way to spend your summer than at the historic Victoria Theatre watching classic films," said Ken Neufeld, president & CEO of Victoria Theatre Association and The Arts Center Foundation in a press release to this news organization. "This summer we'll celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Planet of the Apes and 30th anniversary of Die Hard. Bring the family for a fun Christmas in July weekend with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Elf and Miracle on 34th Street and meet the new Rike's Elves Gustaf and Gigi. Or, bring a date to the Disaster Weekend featuring The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, and Earthquake."
