5. Movie Theatres
OK, we know we don't technically have one in Troy, but many people make a trip to the movie theatre on Christmas Day, so it made our list anyway. Check out Emagine Royal Oak, Emagine Rochester Hills, Uptown Palladium 12 and AMC John R 15 for Christmas Day movie showtimes.
What's closed on Christmas
Most Troy businesses are closed Tuesday, as are government offices, banks, both malls and the post office. Refuse collection will be delayed one day due to the holiday.
Most retailers will reopen Wednesday and are expecting one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
