Here are the movies you can watch in El Paso area theaters this Thanksgiving

EL PASO, Texas -- Thanksgiving is here and for many, that means a bit of extra time on their hands or few more family members in the house.

From animated Disney sequels to a thrilling fugitive tale, this year's theater lineup offers plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy some time at the movies.

First, we've got the movie trailers for you to watch, followed by an interactive map to find the theater closest to you and get showtimes.

Frozen 2

Six years after the first wildly successful "Frozen" animated film, Disney has released a sequel just in time for the holidays.

Idina Menzel still carries the belting vocals of the movie's main character, Elsa, and the creative team remains largely the same. So, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, our favorite funny snowman Olaf and a stinky reindeer all return to the screen to set out on a journey to find the origin of Elsa's powers and save the kingdom of Arendelle. The film's already broken records for Disney, so you'll probably want to get your hands on tickets ASAP.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Tom Hanks portrays the beloved character of Fred Rogers, the man behind Mister Rogers, in this feel-good film.

CNN's Brian Lowry praised Hanks's portrayal of the sing-song character's soft presence in a movie that focuses more on the storyline of Tom Junod, a jaded magazine writer who is assigned to write a profile of Rogers.

Based on a real-life friendship between Rogers and Junod, the film follows their pair's relationship as the children's TV personality leads Junod towards embracing the empathy and kindness that characterized Rogers.

Queen & Slim

A first date goes terribly wrong in this drama written by Lena Thwaite and starring "Get Out's" Daniel Kaluuya. When an African-American couple (Queen and Slim) are pulled over by a policeman, the night takes a violent twist. After Slim shoots the police officer in self-defense, the two are labeled "cop killers" and decide go on the run.

Knives Out

A detective is called to investigate the untimely death of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey and finds himself sifting through an estate rife with tangled family lines and suspected foul play.

Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette and LaKeith Stanfield star in this whodunit directed by "Star Wars: The Last Jedi's" Rian Johnson.

Waves

"Waves" follows the heart-wrenching journey of an African-American family as they confront loss, love and forgiveness against the backdrop of suburban South Florida. From writer and director Trey Edward Shults, the trailer of this film provides only a series of emotionally charged snapshots, leaving moviegoers to come see for themselves what the movie has in store.

Last Christmas

If you're the type of person who starts prepaering for Christmas the second Thanksgiving is over (or even before), "Last Christmas" may be the perfect pick.

From the director of "Bridesmaids," the festive movie follows Kate, played by Emilia Clarke, as she plods through what seems to be a spectacular series of undesirable situations. While working as a holiday elf, she meets Tom (Henry Golding), who may just be able to sprinkle her life with a bit of romance.

Ford v. Ferrari

One greased-up moviegoing option is "Ford v. Ferrari," with Matt Damon and Christian Bale reenacting a rivalry based on a real story. This adrenaline-fueled film pits the two auto makers against each other as the all-American car manufacturer attempts to build a race car revolutionary enough to leave Italian-bred Ferrari in the dust at the 1966 Le Mans race.
