Take your kids to Movie Nights with Santa and celebrate the holidays in a safe way! See Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer on the big screen at the Skyview Drive In in Belleville.
Since the pandemic has cancelled the city's annual Santa Clause hut and Santa Claus Parade in 2020, the Belleville Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring Movie Nights with Santa as a way for kids and families to celebrate the holidays.
Gates open at 3 p.m. each day. A safe way to have photos taken with Santa will take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and Santa will make the rounds handing out candy to kids at 5:45. The movie begins at 6:15.
November 28: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
