Elf is a Christmas movie that is loved by many. Personally, I enjoy watching it every year with my family. From the moments that make me laugh to the parts that make me say, “What is happening right now?” It has become one of my favorite Christmas movies. Laughing throughout the entire film makes it very enjoyable to watch. The runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes feels short because of the entertainment it provides. Wondering what will happen next keeps you engaged and entertained throughout the movie. The film unfolds with several unexpected turns in its plot. Initially, the main character, Buddy, grapples with the feeling of not fitting in with the other elves at the North Pole. Then, he stumbles upon the surprising fact that he was adopted by Santa’s elves after crawling into Santa’s bag during a stop at the orphanage on Christmas Eve. Lastly, Buddy finds out that his biological father doesn’t want or love him. However, after spending time with his real father in New York, his father grows to love him despite his odd ways. West Branch student, Skylar Hartshorne said, “I love the main character, Buddy; he makes the movie 100 times funnier.”

The movie premiered on November 7, 2003 and quickly became a favorite for many people. Even after 20 years, the movie Elf, along with its associated merchandise, remains one of the most popular and beloved Christmas movies. In the United States and Canada, it has grossed approximately 176.6 million dollars so far. The movie is so popular that people make plans to go to theaters to watch it every year.

To cater to the demand for the movie, the Rowland Theater in Philipsburg is offering free screenings for everyone, especially those under 14, on December 10. The movie will be shown at 3pm and is sponsored by the Philipsburg Elks Country Club. To enhance the Christmas cheer, Santa and several elves will be in attendance.
