The Mogwai are back and just in time for the holidays. Regal Cinemas are opening their doors for one week only as Gremlins returns to the silver screen. Remember no snacks after midnight!
Gremlins turns 35 this year. In honor of that milestone and just in time for the holiday season, the Joe Dante horror comedy will be returning to the silver screen.
When Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) is given a very special Christmas gift from his father Randall (Hoyt Axton) little does he know that his entire life is about to change when an adorable, little Mogwai nicknamed Gizmo is introduced into his household.
While he is definitely too cute for words, it is imperative that his new owner adhere to certain rules to ensure his well-being or rather the well-being of others. The guidelines for Mogwais are deceptively simple.
- Don’t get them wet.
- Don’t expose them to bright light.
- Don’t feed them after midnight.
Of course, Gizmo accidentally has water spilled on him and this causes him to multiply. Unfortunately, his brothers are not like him, they are mischievous and nasty. Enter Stripe who is the ring leader of the little monsters and immediately, they start wreaking havoc on Billy’s hometown of Kingston Falls.

As far as we are concerned, Gremlins is a fine movie to show around this festive time of year despite the argument that it isn’t a Christmas film per se (we’re looking at you, Die Hard). Apparently, Regal Cinemas agrees with our assessment.
In July, we reported that WarnerMedia ordered 10 episodes of an animated series called Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai which would function as a prequel to the 1984 film. As of yet, all we know is that it will focus on a young Sam Wing and how he met Gizmo.
The show will take place in China and will involve encounters with monsters and evil Gremlins. According to IMDb Pro, this title is in pre-production. Stay tuned…
