Looking for a fun excuse to leave the house over the holiday weekend? Get caught up on some of the latest films or let nostalgia set in with a classic.

Little ones will no doubt be entertained at East Hampton Library (159 Main Street, East Hampton, easthamptonlibrary.org) who is screening Cars 3 - the 3D computer-animated sports comedy-drama film produced by Pixar and released by Walt Disney Pictures - on Friday, December 22 at 2 p.m. and Cinderella, the original version, on Tuesday, December 26 at 2 p.m.

Parrish Art Museum's (279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, parrishart.org) "Friday Evening Family Programs" will feature Into the Woods on Friday, December 22 at 6 p.m. A star-studded cast, which includes Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp, and Billy Magnussen, take viewers on a memorable mash up of several beloved classic tales such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel.

When they arrive, they come across Gen. Waverly (Dean Jagger), the boys' commander in World War II, who has fallen upon hard times. The foursome hope to provide a holiday miracle by putting on a musical extravaganza that might just save Gen. Waverly's failing country inn. Admission is $5.

The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Claes Bang, and Terry Notary. Tickets are $12 to $15.
