Demi Lovato's Christmas Date Dinner and a Movie

12/27/2010 3:40 PM PST
Demi Lovato only had a few hours to leave her treatment center to spend time with her family on Xmas -- but she spent the time hanging at a place where you're not supposed to talk ... a movie theater!

Demi -- sporting dark nail polish, dark lipstick, dark clothing ... and a leopard-print jacket -- hit a place in Illinois called Hollywood Blvd -- a movie theater with "full to-your-seat food and beverage service."

As we previously reported, Demi's treatment center granted the singer an Xmas Day pass to hang out with her kinfolk outside the facility -- but she was required to return to the center a few hours later.

No word on which flick the singer and her family chose to see ... we're guessing it wasn't "The Fighter."
