The American comedy Home Alone, written by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin, had its world premiere.

Home Alone is a 1990 American Christmas comedy film written and directed by Chris Columbus and produced by John Hughes. The film stars Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, and Catherine O’Hara as the first movie in the Home Alone franchise. Culkin plays Kevin McCallister, a young man who defends his suburban Chicago house from intruders after his family abandons him on their Christmas trip to Paris.

Home Alone premiered in Chicago on November 10, 1990, and was released theatrically in the United States on November 16, receiving great reviews for its cast, humour, and music. Home Alone grossed $476.7 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing live-action comedy until The Hangover Part II (2011) and establishing Culkin as a kid star. Furthermore, it was the second-highest grossing picture of 1990, behind Ghost. It received Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, and Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for Culkin, as well as Academy nominations for Best Original Score for John Williams and Best Original Song for “Somewhere in My Memory.” Since then, Home Alone has been regarded as one of the best Christmas movies.
