At Nampa's "Reel Theatre" on Caldwell Blvd., hundred of families walked through the doors Tuesday to see a film.
Christmas Day is one of movie theaters busiest days of the year. It's also one of the busiest for Nampa's Justin Haines.
Haines works behind the concession stand at the "Reel." Everyday, Justin serves customers popcorn, fills drinks from the machine and even occasionally sweeps up kernels from the rug, even on Christmas. Working the holiday, away from his family, suits Justin just fine.
"Well, my family is crazy," Justin said. "And, I love people. It's good to meet different people and I enjoy working with my co-workers, they are my second family."
Brittany Borchert also enjoys working at the movies on Christmas. She's spent five Dec. 25th's behind the counter, taking tickets and greeting families.
"I spend Christmas morning with my family," Borchert said. "Then,it's really fun to see all the kids who are exicted to come in and see a movie and give people something to do with their family. To give them the ability to come to a cheaper movie it just makes my day. All the kids who come to the movies on Christmas tell me about their toys and it makes happy to hear about it."
According to employees at the "Reel" managment let them choose to either take Christmas Eve or Chritstmas Day off.
