CHAMPAIGN -- Most businesses around here are closed for the holiday, but the parking lot was packed at the Carmike Theater. People came with their friends and family to see shows like "The Hobbit" and "Hunger Games: Catching Fire." They say they enjoy spending time relaxing with the people they love.

Some we spoke with say coming to see something on the big screen is a family tradition, whether that's for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday. And it's one they hope to continue in the years to come.
