    The prehistoric family the Croods are challenged by a rival family the Bettermans, who claim to be better and more evolved.Universal "The Croods: A New Age," arriving in movie theaters on Thanksgiving, is a rare bright spot for operators who have been forced to show older films at discounted prices for the last few months. While some smaller budget films have debuted this fall, these titles aren't drawing the crowds that movie theaters need to survive. The animated tale of a prehistoric family will be one of the first releases with a budget greater than $50 million since "Tenet" debuted domestically in September. Cinema owners are hopeful that the Dreamworks movie will lure parents and kids back to the theater despite continued surges in coronavirus cases and the threat of more closures. But industry analysts aren't as optimistic the family-friendly title will be a box office savior. "The spike in cases suggests to me that only the foolhardy will head to the theater with their kids," said Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush. The film follows the Croods, a...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — In Baltimore City, the organization “Building Our Nation’s Daughters” worked to pack 270 baskets of food for single parent families on Sunday. It’s the sixth year for their Thanksgiving basket drive event. Drivers had their temperatures checked before accepting a route to make deliveries. The founder said this year Thanksgiving is different for everyone, and single parents are struggling. “Normally we have communal dinners. we have to stay in our homes and eat with our smaller families and so single parent families may struggle more to get food on their table, so we need to make sure they have the ability to stay away from our other family members so we can keep the impact of the coronavirus down. while also making sure that they’re able to eat and feed their families too,” said Ateira Griffin, CEO of Building Our Nation’s Daughters. More than 75 community members made monetary and non-perishable donations to make this event a success.

    Nashvillians will be prohibited from holding public or private gatherings of more than eight people without permission from the Metro Public Health Department, Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced Thursday. The public health rule will go into effect Monday – three days before Thanksgiving – and applies “whether you are at a restaurant or your backyard,” according to a graphic released by the mayor’s office. Cooper announced the “Rule of 8” requirement only 24 hours after speaking Wednesday at a socially distanced gathering of roughly 40 attendees, including Gov. Bill Lee and other state officials, announcing the expansion of a Nashville-based biotech company. “The virus does not care whether you're in a public space or private space, so we need to be just as good in private as we are in public,” Cooper said during a news conference Thursday, citing similar limitations in Sweden and Kentucky. Metro Nashville Police officers will respond to calls reporting violations of the order and have the authority to issue citations for violators, a department spokesperson confirmed, noting that private citizens may...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – There were a number of police officers at a Walmart in North Miami Beach Thursday evening, but it was all for a good reason. “We are giving you up to $100 to shop for anything you like in the store,” said an officer addressing a gathering crowd. The announcement was met with cheers and applause. It was the annual “Shop with a Cop” event in Miami-Dade. Together, with the help of Walmart, selected families had an hour to shop with the help from Miami-Dade police officers.

    An Oklahoma church has invited its huge congregation to Thanksgiving meals — despite health experts’ advice to refrain from getting together for the celebration during a rise in COVID-19 cases. Victory Church in Tulsa announced plans for the “Friendsgiving” event Sunday to its 13,000-member congregation, encouraging people to “bring a neighbor,” Newsweek reported. “We always look forward to this meal with you. All of our campuses will be participating at their facility,” the church wrote on Facebook. The event sparked backlash online over the church hosting the Turkey Day festivities during the pandemic. “There is more than one way to give thanks and worship. A BIG one is by not killing people,” wrote one Twitter user. Another added, “This is a terrible call and many people are going to die here in the name of ‘religious freedom.'” The church didn’t respond to request for comment from Newsweek. Experts have been encouraging Oklahomans to stay home this holiday season as the state grapples with record daily case numbers, including 616 new infections on Nov. 14, the highest since the pandemic began....
    An Oklahoma megachurch has come under fire for urging the 13,000 members of its congregation to ‘bring a neighbor’ to a Thanksgiving service this weekend, as COVID cases and deaths have surged in the state in recent days. The controversy comes as seven Midwestern governors from both sides of the political aisle have penned an op-ed in the Washington Post, urging Americans to stay home this Thanksgiving to stop the virus’ ‘devastating’ spread. The CDC also issued a statement Thursday advising Americans refrain from traveling for the upcoming holiday, pointing to increasing hospitalizations and cases nationwide as reason for its 'strong recommendation'.  Amid the warnings, Victory Church, in Tusla, posted to Facebook on Monday announcing its plan to hold a mass 'Friendsgiving' event this Sunday, encouraging their members to ‘come and share a meal with us & BRING A NEIGHBOR.’ ‘We always look forward to this meal with you,’ the church wrote. ‘All of our campuses will be participating at their facility. Come ready to eat.’ Tulsa's Victory Church (above) has come under fire for promoting a Friendsgiving event that...

            by Scott McClallen  In a Tuesday media call, Gov. Tim Walz designated extended family Thanksgivings as “mini-spreader events.” “That Thanksgiving dinner or watching that football game, or movie … is a riskier proposition than getting your hair cut at a salon where everyone is masked, distanced,” Walz said. “I worry that after Thanksgiving, if we have thousands or tens of thousands of these mini-spreader events, it will be catastrophic,” Walz said. “As painful as it is, do not gather with those large families. Keep it inside your household.” Walz highlighted people who’d been impacted by COVID-19 or experienced loved ones getting infected and die. “I don’t want to lose the humanity that is in the middle of this,” Walz said. “You will hear stories that are heartbreaking.” Walz introduced former GOP state Rep. Nick Zerwas, who detailed his intensive care unity (ICU) stay from COVID-19 last week. Zerwas has had ten open-heart surgeries. “It happened so quickly and progressed so fast,” Zerwas said of his COVID-19 infection. Sarah Winston’s teenage daughter was in the ICU...

"Our ICU beds are nearly full in the state, our emergency departments are full, our hospitals are rapidly filling up," Forman said. "We're concerned Thanksgiving could be a massive superspreader event and push us out of the hospitals and into our field hospitals here." The positivity rate in Rhode Island is now at 5.9%, according to the state's Department of Health. The cases, in turn, are quickly turning to hospitalizations. ICU beds are almost full, with 87% occupied statewide. In a Wednesday evening interview on "The News with Shepard Smith," Forman explained that what she's seeing in her state now, is unlike anything she has seen in her over 20 years of practicing medicine in the United States.  "Our cases are increasing so rapidly here, we literally today are making plans to put refrigerated...

    HOBOKEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Tri-State Area officials are concerned next week’s Thanksgiving holiday could turn into a super-spreader event. They say it’s up to everyone to avoid gatherings that could spread COVID-19. Dan and Laura Vimont, of Bergen County, officially canceled their plans with family. “The curve is going straight up, and it’s just dangerous,” Dan told CBS2. “We have elderly relatives, and we just don’t get to go visit them.” The New Jersey Health Department strongly advises families not to take residents out of longterm care facilities for the holidays this year. If they do, those residents will need to quarantine upon return. Gov. Phil Murphy announced new state restrictions Monday, limiting private gatherings to a maximum of 10 people indoors and 150 people outdoors, with exceptions for certain religious or political gatherings, weddings and funerals.

    Macy's Thanksgiving parade will look a little different this year. Atilgan Ozdil/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade — in its 94th year — will be even more TV-centric this year.  The actual parade will be limited to a one block stretch near Herald Square in Manhattan and closed to the public.  While there will still be balloons, they will be pulled by vehicles and not people. Performances, including those by Broadway stars, will be pre-recorded.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. This year's famed Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade won't be the miles-long extravaganza we're used to, but there will still be a celebration.  Some of New York City's biggest stars — the 60-foot helium filled cartoon characters who grace American TV screens while pies are burning — will be limited to a block-long journey this year. There won't be an in-person audience, The New York Times reported. The event, which is in its 94th year, will be aired on NBC and Telemundo.

They said anyone can walk, run or hike on Thanksgiving or throughout the week with or without your dog.

    (CNN)Three weeks after Canadians celebrated their Thanksgiving holiday, the country is seeing a national spike in cases.Several cities and provinces have shattered single day records for coronavirus infections, and Canada's top doctors say the holiday -- held on October 12 -- is partly to blame. "Prior to Thanksgiving I made a lot of appeals to people about the need to keep the family gatherings small," Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia's provincial health officer, said last week, as she announced a ban on inviting more than six people into your home. "And unfortunately, there were a number of events that have happened that have led to quite dramatic increases over the past week."

    Celebrities have taken to social media to slam California Governor Gavin Newsom's 'ridiculously unenforceable' Thanksgiving crackdown that bans singing and shouting and limits the holiday to a two-hour outdoor event. 'If my Aunt comes over, can I throw her a slice of turkey from the window?' mocked actor Rob Schneider as he blasted the 'Emperor Newsom'.  Newsom announced new safety guidelines earlier this month for all private gatherings just as Californians were gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Under the rules, gatherings over the holiday must include people from no more than three households, be held outdoors, last no longer than two hours and guests can only go inside to use the restroom - so long as restrooms are sanitized often. Masks can only be taken off to eat and drink, guests must be sat six feet apart and singing, shouting and chanting are 'strongly discouraged'.  Newsom defended his rules this week following the backlash denying the state had mandated what have been dubbed 'Thanksgiving guidelines'. 'I read somewhere some folks asserting we put out guidelines for the holidays,' he...
    Macy’s won’t be hosting Santa Claus this year due to the pandemic, disrupting a nearly 160 year tradition, numerous sources reported. More than a quarter of a million people visit Santa at the company’s flagship New York store every year. Due to the crowds the event attracts to the store’s Santaland packed with toys, Christmas trees, and elves, the company will instead offer a free online experience on its website to “safely bring the magic of Santa Claus to children of all ages this year,” a statement to the Associated Press said.

    There are few things as synonymous with Turkey Day as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. But this year, the beloved New York City event will be television-only for the first time in its 94-year history, Macy's announced on Monday.  Marchers will not be making their way down the traditional 2.5-mile parade route this year. The change is an effort to "avoid gathering millions of spectators in person," a company spokesperson told CBS News.  Instead, the parade's elements will be staged in and around the Herald Square area of Manhattan — the location of the iconic Macy's store, which is the traditional endpoint of the event. The massive helium character balloons, show-stopping floats and even Santa Claus will all still be in the show.  The #MacysParade will go on!

The parade will still air across the country on NBC on Thanksgiving morning, but the pandemic forced Macy's to "reimagine" the event. It will forgo the traditional 2.5-mile route and reduce by 75% the number of parade participants, who will be socially distanced during performances and required to wear face coverings."It will not be the same parade we're used to," said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday. "They are re-inventing the event for this moment in history."All parade participants will be at least 18 years old, with previously selected high school and college bands' performances deferred to the 2021 event and local professional marching and musical ensembles taking over this year.Read MoreMeanwhile, the 80 to 100 handlers that normally walk the...
    For the first time in nearly 100 years, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will be a virtual event this November because of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers announced on Monday.  Typically one of the city’s biggest annual events, the downsized show will go on without the usual throngs of spectators. Instead, its signature features, from the enormous helium balloon characters to the dance performances, will be pretaped in Manhattan’s Herald Square over two days and broadcast on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 26, as a “special presentation,” Macy’s M, +2.34%   said.  Sixty-foot balloons, the parade’s main attraction, were nearly its downfall last year, when dangerous winds threatened to rip the floating giants from the hands of volunteers. This year, each colossus will be rigged to a handful of approved vehicles, cutting out the need for the usual 80-100 handlers per balloon, the company said. “While it will certainly look different in execution, this year’s Macy’s Parade celebration will once again serve its historical purpose — to bring joy into the hearts of millions across the nation,” said Susan...
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The coronavirus pandemic is transforming this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade into a television-only spectacle, New York City said on Monday, with the traditional giant character balloons pulled by vehicles rather than humans and absolutely no children allowed. Thousands of wide-eyed onlookers who typically line city streets around the traditional 2.5-mile parade route passing Macy's Herald Square store instead were advised to cheer the procession from their couches in front of their home television screen. "Under the unique challenges of these unparalleled times, we felt it was important to continue this cherished holiday tradition that has been the opening act to the holiday season for generations of families," Susan Tercero, the parade's executive producer, said in a statement. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city had worked closely with Macy's to come up with a safe and creative plan to keep the parade - a more than 90-year tradition that typically kicks off the holiday gift buying season - on schedule in the city that was once the U.S. epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. To pull...
    For the first time in 94 years, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be a virtual event rather than a crowded celebration filled with shivering New Yorkers. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Monday that the in-person parade would not be taking place this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
