Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Drafthouse hosting ‘Grinch’ screening on the farm on Saturday

Only in (warmish, if rainy right now) Texas could we host a Christmas movie screening at a farm.

On Saturday afternoon and evening, the Alamo Drafthouse and Johnson’s Backyard Garden are hosting a screening of “Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas” with a whole bunch of other family friendly holiday activities.

“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” will show at Johnson’s Backyard Garden on Saturday night.

The movie doesn’t start until 6 p.m., but starting at 3 p.m., you can take a hay ride, pin the tail on the donkey, paint an okra santa ornament, eat from a food truck or compete in a Cindy Lou Who and Grinch look-alike contests.

Tickets cost $20 ($7.50 for kids ages 4 to 17), and you can also bring donations (money or canned goods) for the Central Texas Food Bank. The event is BYOB, and you can buy tickets online or at the door. (Note that they won’t be accepting cash at the door, so cards only if you wait until Saturday.)

Can’t make it on Saturday? The Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow is showing holiday movies for the next few Friday nights at the French Legation, plus a Dec. 17 screening of “Home Alone” at Live Oak Brewery.
