Breakfast and a Movie

Once a month, The Hollywood Theater invites movie lovers to roll out of bed for breakfast and a classic movie. Arrive at 10:15 am to enjoy the delectable breakfast prepared by Eliza’s Oven to ensure you’ll be finished by 11 to catch the feature film! The Sunday-morning tradition has previously aired titles like, Some Like It Hot and Breakfast At Tiffany’s, but if you’re wrapped in the holiday spirit, make sure to catch the Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life, on December 20th!

One Hellofa Holiday Brew Tour

Saturday, December 26, 2015 begins at The Pittsburgh Public Market – Strip District in Pittsburgh, PA

Rediscover your holiday spirit with One Hellofa Holiday Brew Tour! Start off the day at Bloom Brew in West Newton and discover the 2-acre fruit orchard that is utilized in their beer. Continue to the award-winning, Four Seasons Brewing Company in Latrobe. We recommend the Dark Side of the Pint for winter; the 2014 GABF Silver Medal Winner is an oatmeal stout that is smooth, dark, and has just a hint of coffee. Helltown Brewing, located in Mt. Pleasant, is the last brewery of the tour, offering devilishly delicious beers. Don’t miss out on a full-day of great beers to counteract the after-Christmas slump!
