SPOKANE—Oct. 15, 2019…Fox Presents is pleased to announce a very special Thanksgiving weekend event in Spokane at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox: An Evening with Chevy Chase, with a 30th anniversary screening of his holiday classic movie, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on Friday, November 29th at 7:30 p.m.  

Pre-sale tickets for Spokane Symphony subscribers and Friends of The Fox go on sale on Thursday, October 17 at 10:00 a.m. at www.foxtheaterspokane.org or the box office at 1001 W. Sprague Avenue, or (509) 624-1200. 

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 18 at 10:00 a.m. at the same locations.

Tickets start at $63, with a VIP ticket option at $178, which includes guaranteed best seats in the house and a post-show photo op.

After the screening of the movie on the new giant screen (20’ x 40’) at The Fox, Chevy Chase (Clark Griswold) will entertain everyone with stories from his life and career, including the making of his popular movies and legendary television programs, plus there will be a Q & A with the audience.

An original member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast, Chevy Chase, was the trailblazer who turned SNL success into Hollywood mega-stardom. The movies, Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Fletch, and Three Amigos all contributed to making Chevy Chase a world-wide household name.

“We think this will be great fun for families and friends over Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving weekend in Spokane—something memorable to do together, and an early holiday gift for everyone!” said Kathy Gustafson, marketing director for the Spokane Symphony and Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

Christmas with the Griswolds has never been more beloved. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation was ranked #2 on Esquire Magazine’s list of “The 40 Best Christmas Movies” of all time.

“For many families, it’s not Christmas without watching Christmas Vacation. This year they can watch it with the star of the movie—what could be better than that?” Gustafson said.
