Poolside Movie Nights

Get in the holiday spirit this December with Poolside Movie Nights — presented by Howard Johnson by Wyndham and The Y. The movie night series invites families, friends and neighbors of all ages to enjoy free movie screenings of holiday classics.

“During the holiday season, it’s easy to forget that sometimes the best gift of all is simply the gift of time spent together,”  said Howard Johnson Brand Operations Vice President Cynthia Liu. “It’s tradition for so many of us to wait all year in anticipation of our favorite holiday movie classics to return, and sharing those experiences with our loved ones — beaming eyes and grins included — is surely the gift that will keep on giving.”

Poolside Movie Nights starts this Friday and runs select nights through Dec. 22.
