ROME N.Y.- After a long day of opening presents, eating Christmas dinner, and spending time with friends, there is a way to get out and relax.
That is going to see a movie.
The Rome Cinema 8 was pretty busy Christmas night.
Groups of families and friends came out to enjoy a movie together.
Among the movies playing at the theater were Jumanji the Next Level, Frozen 2, Cats, Black Christmas, Little Woman, Richard Jewell, and of course the latest Star Wars film The Rise of Skywalker.
Patrons NewsChannel 2 spoke with say a movie on Christmas is a nice way to wrap up the holiday.
"It takes us away from normal everyday stress." said William Malik of Rome. "(It) puts us into another kind of a fantasy world. Especially the movie Jumanji. It will take us into a fantasy world and relieve some of the stress of everyday hassles."
"It's pretty cool just to spend time with the family, watch new movies with them and get to experience the new movies." said Hannah Soloman of Rome.
The week between Christmas and New Year's is one of the busiest weeks for movie theaters nationwide.
