Mele Kalikimaka! To celebrate the holiday season, this month’s Courtyard Cinema will be a FREE screening of the Christmas comedy ELF starring the one-and-only Will Ferrell, Zoe Deschanel, Peter Dinklage, James Caan and Ed Asner, and directed by IRON MAN director Jon Favreau! Come watch this zany, holiday classic with friends and family and enjoy a film under the stars in the heart of Honolulu, Ward Village!

Synopsis: Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
