Tired from Christmas shopping? Take at break at the movies for free, and help good causes.

For the third year, the Santa Rosa Entertainment Group will screen free holiday films all day Wednesday, Dec. 17, at five local theaters.

The films and theaters are:

“National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” Roxy Stadium 14, 85 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa.

Show times are 11:30 a.m. and 2:15, 5 and 7:30 p.m.

The only requirement is that each patron bring a donation of a non-perishable food item or a new toy, which will be turned over to the Redwood Empire Food Bank and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sonoma County for distribution.

In addition, cash donations will be collected. The Santa Rosa Entertainment Group match donations up to $1,000 at each theater, for a maximum of $5,000.
