Christmas Movie Matinees

We are so excited to add a little nostalgia to the Christmas season downtown by bringing back Christmas movie matinees sponsored by Main Street DeFuniak Springs!

Each Sunday afternoon we will be showing a Christmas movie at 3:00 p.m. which allows you to see a movie, grab dinner downtown and then view Christmas Reflections around the lake yard!

Seating will be limited for social distancing purposes.


This wouldn’t be possible without generous donations from community leaders and businesses. You are greatly appreciated!
