GARAGE DOOR MOVIE THEATER SPREADS HOLIDAY CHEER

This holiday season, one Chicago-area family is putting its garage door to use in a way that’s both festive and creative, The Herald Tribune reports. This inventive use of the garage door is taking place at the home of Grant and Kim Weldin, who use a projector to show “a continuous loop of holiday movies on their garage door for their neighborhood kids drop over to watch cartoons such as ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ and ‘Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.'” as well as other holiday classics, like “Elf,” “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

“In the community of Central Park,” the Herald reports, “people show Christmas spirit with old-fashioned lights, newfangled displays and creative takes on the holiday scene.” But the Weldin’s outdo all of their neighbors with their driveway theater. Passersby–the kids, neighbors, and strangers who happen to wander past the Weldin residence–stop and smile and linger on the sidewalk, their eyes glued to the garage door movie screen. “People do double-takes as they drive by,” says the Herald. The Weldins use an old video projector to show the holiday movies. Sound emanates from two speakers in their driveway, but they keep the volume down. The screen looks big from the street, but those who live across the street report that they don’t mind facing a garage door theater.

“The cartoons show up the best,” said Grant, 28, an audience member and a collision adjuster at Gettel Toyota. “They’re the best.”

But the Weldins don’t play a holiday movie every night in December: “During the cold snap last weekend, they warmed the neighborhood with a different kind of garage-door video. It was a fireplace scene with crackling logs and 10-foot flames.”

Neighbors are appreciative. One mother encouraged her kids to thank the Weldin’s for their complimentary holiday cheer. The kids offered thanks and high-fives before veering, again, towards the garage door. “For a moment, they were part of the movie — in silhouette, anyway — for a one-of-a-kind Christmas scene.”
