If we're being honest, it's hard to go wrong with barbecue, beers and Bruce Willis to celebrate Father's Day. Take your pops (or your kid) to the Enzian for a special showing of the classic action flick Die Hard, and enjoy pulled pork, wings and a whole host of sides. Dads get one free Yuengling, or you can splurge on a VIP table for unlimited Yuengling, a reserved seat and a special gift for your favorite guy. And sure, Die Hard is technically a Christmas movie, but watching badass movies with your dad is a celebration for any time of the year.

UPDATE: Enzian has released a statement announcing that the film shown at the Father's Day Brunch will now be the 1980 Leslie Nielsen screwball comedy, Airplane!, instead of Die Hard. From the horse's mouth:
In the aftermath of the recent tragedy at Pulse, we have decided that Die Hard, the film originally chosen for the Father’s Day event, will be replaced with Airplane!. We feel that Die Hard strikes too close to a very sensitive and recent wound our community has suffered. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you will still join us for what will be a wonderful event celebrating Dad. Our hearts are with the victims and their families.

We are happy to issue refunds to anyone who has already purchased tickets. Please contact our Box Office at 407-629-1088.

11:30 a.m. Sunday, June 19 | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland | 407-629-0054 | enzian.org | $35-$240
