Watch Time Out's favourite Christmas movies in a magical winter wonderland setting.
We’ve been making a list, and checking it twice, full of our favourite festive flicks. Now, we want you to come and watch them with us in a pop-up winter wonderland for our merry movie marathon: ‘Time Out Loves Christmas Movies’.
We’ve teamed up with brand-new Elephant & Castle venue Lost Rivers Elephant and transformed it into a tinsel-strewn, snow-covered extravaganza where you can settle down and watch a veritable feast of Christmas movie magic, including ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ (both the 1947 and 1994 versions), ‘Home Alone’, ‘Bad Santa’, ‘Die Hard’, 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' and 'The Santa Clause'. There's also a special preview screening of 'The Muppet Christmas Carol'.
Tuck into tasty food and drink while you watch, and hang around after the screening for a party packed with music and performers. It'll be Christmas come early, we promise. Take a look at the full programme and book your tickets here.
Doors to the main space open at 6.30pm and the screening starts at 7pm. The bar opens at 5pm and will be open after the film finishes.

My first pop up cinema experience in this venue was planned for more than a month, I was very excited, my boyfriend booked tickets and we wanted to start December with Scrooged Christmas movie.
I will never come back, never recommend this venue to anybody. The movie was cancelled with notification being sent only 40 minutes before movie was supposed to start ( btw I was already on my way to the venue as commute in London doesn't take 5 minutes)
Timeout should remove this cinema from their web as the service was horrible, nobody contacted us regarding refund or what to do with tickets.
An awesome set up and a great movie (I watched "Jingle All The Way")! The only criticism I had was that it was very cold inside the venue - there may be a need to put a heater or two inside :)
If your expecting this to be anything remotely like backyard cinema then think again. Community hall chairs, a few bits of tinsel and lights, a bar that ran out of hot mulled wine before the film started and it was about 2 degrees as the heaters were turned off. The film Elf is good though.
Overall a very disappointing date night that I sadly wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Big thumbs down timeout.
