TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Once again, the most magical time of the year is upon us. And Valley real estate entrepreneur and movie theater owner Michael Pollack will help bring the magic of the holidays to life!

At 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 19, Michael Pollack will flip the switch for more than 500,000 twinkling lights at the Pollack Tempe Cinemas, located at the intersection of McClintock and Elliott Roads in Tempe. 

Right after the holiday light show, Pollack will offer a night of free holiday movies for all those who attend the annual flipping of the switch. The free holiday movies will include these four holiday favorites: Elf, It's A Wonderful Life, Home Alone, and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

"This is by far my favorite time of the year," said Pollack. "Not only because we get to put on the biggest and grandest display of lights at our Pollack Tempe Cinemas, but we get to invite everyone down the theater on us to enjoy a night of free holiday movies."

Pollack's over-the-top light display will be available all throughout the holiday season, from opening night on November 19, until January 2!

Want more holiday lights? Pollack and his Motown-themed float will be participating in two holiday light parades this season.

Pollack will join the Fantasy of Lights Parade on Saturday, November 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. as the parade marches through Downtown Tempe, spreading the spirit of the season with live music for everyone who attends to enjoy. Admission is free, so bring your families and join in the festivities.  Did we mention there is a chance to meet Santa Claus after the parade?

But that's not all. You can follow Pollack along the APS Electric Lights Parade, which has been a long-standing holiday tradition for the past 27 years.  The Pollack Investments CEO is proud to once again be part of this Phoenix tradition by participating in its 28th year. Join Pollack on Saturday, December 5 at 7 p.m., and join in the holiday spirit watching the parade in action!
