These ultra-Christmassy movie screenings and parties are the perfect way to welcome Christmas

By Time Out Film

Do you fancy watching ‘Home Alone’ in the most Christmassy surroundings ever, and then partying afterwards with festive performers and singers?

Or doing the same with ‘Elf’, Love Actually’ and ‘Jingle All The Way’?

Everyone loves Christmas movies, and this year Time Out is creating a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it festive pop-up cinema so that Londoners can watch their seasonal favourites in a space especially designed to make it feel like Christmas has come early.

From Thursday November 23 to Saturday December 16, Time Out is hosting 18 nights of Christmas movies in a uniquely transformed pop-up cinema in south London. And tickets for this über-festive movie extravaganza are just £17 per night, which includes the screening and entry to the Christmas party after the movie.

The pop-up venue Lost Rivers Elephant will be transformed into a Christmas paradise for Time Out Loves Christmas Movies, with dazzling decorations and festive music to match. And, yes, we promise – there will be fake snow. Each screening will be followed by music and performances from acts including The Majorettes, Little Gay Brother and Family Fierce.

As well as the films mentioned above, others showing include ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’, ‘Die Hard’ and both the 1947 and 1994 versions of ‘Miracle on 34th Street’.

The series will also include a special preview of the twenty-fifth anniversary release of ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’, before it comes to cinemas widely later in December.

So don’t get left behind like Macaulay Culkin in ‘Home Alone’ – treat yourself and your friends to an early Christmas present right now.

Time Out Loves Christmas Movies is presented in association with Park Circus and runs from Tuesday November 23 to Saturday December 16.
