If abandoning your in-laws and their not-quite-delectable Christmas ham for the most unfestive thing you can think of has always been a yuletide fantasy of yours, behold the Jewish Christmas Day tradition of Chinese and a Movie at 92YTribeca. There will be an all-you-can-eat Chinese-food buffet, screenings of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park, and a full bar. It’s a great way to unwind after all the stress of the season, and watching that gestapo jerk in the glasses get his face melted off in Raiders of the Lost Ark would add a little cheer to anybody’s holiday. Also, the price isn’t bad for a dinner and two movies.
