Alameda businesses and organizations have put together a wide range of options for Islanders looking to go out on the town this evening. That means that residents can find lots of fun close to home — and leave their cars behind while ringing in the New Year.
The Alameda Theatre & Cineplex will host a New Year’s Eve celebration by showing “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” at 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 31. For $10, guests can see the movie and enjoy a New Year Eve’s countdown at 11:45 p.m., during an intermission. Event organizers invite community members to come “enjoy an alcohol-free evening for all ages.”
The Alameda Theatre will share the proceeds of half of all tickets sales with local charities, including the Alameda High School Music Booster, Alameda High School DECA (a marketing and business club), Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter, Encinal High School PTSA, Alameda Civic Ballet, Greater Alameda Business Association, Park Street Business Association and West Alameda Business Association.
