About Home Alone:
It is Christmas time and the McCallister family is preparing for a vacation in Paris,
France. But the youngest in the family, 8-year-old trouble-maker Kevin, gets into a
scuffle with his older brother Buzz and was sent to his room, which is on the third floor
of his house.
Then, the next morning, while the rest of the family was in a rush to make it to the
airport on time, they completely forget about Kevin who now has the house all to
himself. Being home alone was fun for Kevin, having a pizza all to himself, jumping on
his parents' bed, and making a mess. Then, Kevin discovers about two burglars, Harry
and Marv, about to rob his house on Christmas Eve. Kevin acts quickly by wiring his
own house with makeshift booby traps to stop the burglars and to bring them to
justice. Hilarious and heart warming, HOME ALONE is holiday fun for the entire family.
Seating limited all nights.
