The Nutcracker (1993)
The beloved holiday stage production gets the Hollywood treatment in this Disney version starring Macaulay Culkin as the Nutcracker (is there anything more 90s than that)? Featuring the New York City Ballet, the film follows the traditional plot so grab some coco and get nostalgic.
Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Ok, so plenty of people debate whether this is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie, but I stand firm in my belief that it can be both! I mean really, is there a bad time of year to watch this cult classic? From the catchy songs to the incredible claymation, there is little not to love.
Holiday Inn (1942)
With holiday right in the title, this black and white film is full of romance and some incredible dancing from stars Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Marjorie Reynolds. With music composed by the King of Christmas- Irving Berlin- this may just become your new go-to winter movie.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)
The newest film on our list, this action packed reimagining of the timeless classic is definitely worth a watch. Famed dancer Misty Copeland plays the Ballerina Princess alongside a star-studded cast including Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, and Mackenzie Foy as Clara.
