Event description
Presidio Dance Theatre presents “Beyond the Land of Sweets: A Holiday Drive-In”

About this Event

Beyond the Land of Sweets is a lively spin-off of the cherished Nutcracker Ballet, following Clara’s travels all around the globe as she celebrates holiday traditions across cultures. An enchanted trip to Whoville, dancing reindeer, and Tinsel the Tree, make this the perfect family-friendly show. Enjoy a special premiere of “Cracking the Nut,” featuring Presidio Dance Theatre and international ballet artists, discussing their favorite pieces of the famous holiday spectacle.

Concessions are available to movie-goers.


For sightline reasons, taller vehicles such as SUVs will be parked towards the rear of the venue so as not to block the views of smaller cars.
