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.

David Mulford, played in the leadup to the 1776 Battle of Long Island, and of his fate during the region’s subsequent occupation by the British.
