Seeing a movie is a Christmas tradition for many. Les Miserables, Parental Guidance and Silver Linings Playbook open on Christmas. Coram Movieland will have their first showings at noon and continue until about 11 p.m. Port Jefferson Cinemas will start up the first reel at 12:49 p.m. and the last one will begin at around 9:40 p.m. Island 16 in Holtsville and AMC Loews in Stony Brook will be open as well.
