Fall films continue at Liberty Hall
It’s Fall y’all! Liberty Hall is here to get you ready for sweater weather throughout the whole month of November. 
Thursday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. Liberty Hall will show the 80’s classic “The Big Chill” starring Glen Close and Jeff Goldblum. A group of seven former college friends gather for a weekend reunion at a South Carolina winter house after the funeral of one of their friends.
Then, on Friday Nov. 9 at 7 p.m., Liberty Hall will show “Almost Famous.”  Starring Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup and Patrick Fugit, this is the story of a high school boy given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies them on their concert tour.
Next, on Saturday Nov. 11 at 3 p.m., join Liberty Hall for a special Hit the Bricks matinee showing of “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Bored with his Halloween routine, Jack Skellington longs to spread Christmas joy, but his antics could stop Christmas from coming. As with all Liberty movies, dressing up and singing along to your favorite songs is highly encouraged!
The following Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m., Liberty Hall will pay homage to Prince and his epic film “Purple Rain.” In this rock musical drama, a young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance and his own dissatisfied band as his star begins to rise. Don’t forget to wear your purple velvet and stilettos because dressing up and singing along is highly recommended. Prince would want it that way.
Finally, on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m., ring in the holiday season with a special showing of “Elf,” sponsored by the UT Tyler Alumni Association, starring funnyman Will Ferrell. After accidently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his human size, a man raised as an elf is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity. This movie will follow the Downtown Tyler Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting. Parking is available at the Fair parking garage (entrance at College and Elm street).
Tickets are available online at Prices may vary. Doors open one hour before show times. Be sure to “Like” Liberty Hall on Facebook for daily updates.
Liberty Hall is a department of the City of Tyler. The mission of Liberty Hall is to create an exciting arts and entertainment experience that will integrate the arts into the downtown’s social, economic and community fabric by providing diverse opportunities for entertainment, through film, theater, comedy and music.
