If you thought that the concept of Jews going to the movies and eating Chinese food on December 25 was a story the Christmas fairies made up to make Christians feel better about having something to do today—you thought right. Regardless, the cliché caught on to the point where every Jewish-oriented corner of town has some such event going on today. And since the only movies Jews watch on Christmas are made by other Jews, your best bet is 92Y Tribeca’s Chinese & a Movie Mel Brooks Double Feature. Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, and all-you-can-eat: Who could ask for anything more?
