If you are looking for an affordable family friendly New Year’s Eve event, you might want to consider Universal CityWalk.  They will be ringing in 2015 with Special “New Year’s Eve Movie Night” Celebration at the AMC Theatres.


For $25 for adults or $15 for kids, guests will walk the red carpet inside AMC CityWalk and enjoy live DJ dance party on the second level of the theater with appearances by Universal characters the Minions, Doc Brown, Dracula, Frankenstein and the quintessential Hollywood icon, Marilyn Monroe, in honor of the theme park’s 50th anniversary.

Once inside, party-goers get a complimentary soft drink, all you can eat popcorn and a New Year’s Eve goodie bag, and you pick the classic Universal movie you want to see before the new year.  The titles are…

Jurassic Park
Back To The Future

Or you could opt for a special double feature of two, classic Universal Monster Movies


CityWalk restaurants and nightclubs are also offering festive New Year’s Eve private parties, including Howl at the Moon, Infusion Lounge, Jillian’s Hi Life Lanes, Saddle Ranch Chop House and Wolfgang Puck Bistro.

One interesting change to the CityWalk New Year’s Eve festivities is the absence of fireworks and outdoor concert performances.  There is actually a good reason for the shift. CityWalk is situated right up against the back side of construction for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which will be opening in 2016. So, sparks are out of the question for this year. But movie magic is still in the cards.

Grab your tickets to New Years Eve Movie Night ahead of time and get ready to have some fun.
