Warm up this Christmas as a range of festive favourites return to the big screen at Showcase Cinema at Phoenix Retail Park.
From snowstopping rom-coms to classic comedies, Showcase Cinemas is giving guests the gift of film this season, with 13 Christmas favourites being screened
‘Tis the season for romance this winter, as the ensemble cast return to the big screen in Love Actually in celebration of the film’s 20th anniversary (from 24th November). In the mood for more rom-coms? Unlucky in love Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet embark on a transatlantic journey to escape heartbreak in The Holiday (from 8th December).
Also celebrating its 20th anniversary this year – the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear – Elf, the Will Ferrell favourite, celebrates the milestone by returning to Showcase Cinemas from 1st December.
For more family favourites, cinemagoers can take a trip to Christmas Town with Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (from 25th November), enjoy a comedic spin on the Charles Dickens classic with The Muppet’s Christmas Carol (from 2nd December), embrace the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss in How the Grinch Stole Christmas (from 3rd December) and discover the secrets behind Santa’s covert operation in Arthur Christmas (from 10th December).
Nothing says Christmas like Catherine O’Hara screaming “Kevin!”; beloved family favourite Home Alone will also take to the big screen this holiday season from 15th December.
But what is Christmas without the classics?! Often cited as one of the greatest festive flicks of all time, 1946’s It’s a Wonderful Life will be screening from 9th December, joining the likes of Miracle on 34th Street (from 26th November), musical favourite White Christmas (from 25th November) and, with a brand new 4k restoration, Santa Claus: The Movie (from 9th December).
