The annual Santa Parade in East Hampton Village has been canceled because of the pandemic, but the village and the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce are offering a safe, festive way for families to celebrate the holidays: drive-in movies at Lot 2 of the Main Beach parking lot.
On Saturday, "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with Jim Carrey will be shown at 5 p.m., and the comedy "Elf," starring Will Ferrell as a human who has been raised by elves, will start at 8.
On Saturday, Dec. 26, the animated film "The Polar Express" will be screened at 5 p.m., with "The Santa Clause," starring Tim Allen as a last-minute fill-in for Santa, at 8.
The cost is $40 per car for tickets purchased at least 48 hours in advance, and $50 otherwise. Tickets are available on the Chamber of Commerce's website.
