Nothing puts us in the holiday spirit faster than watching our favourite Christmas movies. From family classics like It’s A Wonderful Life to modern masterpieces like Elf, they get the festive feelings flowing thick and fast. With The Luna Cinema arriving in Birmingham this December, we’re extra excited to watch them all on the big screen this year.
Joining venues in London, York and Liverpool, the cinematic experience, brings its winter programme to The Factory Works in Birmingham on December 9. Based at The Custard Factory, the Digbeth venue will host several screenings every day until December 23 – making sure every Christmas classic is shown. There’s something for everyone too, from a singalong session of Frozen to Die Hard (for those who insist it’s a Christmas movie.)
George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, says: “Nothing says Christmas like gathering with family and friends to watch festive film favourites and we’re as excited as ever to be back this winter with a wonderful lineup of film favourites in breath-taking venues across the country. An absolute must-do this December, our 2023 programme represents the ultimate line-up of Christmas classics in a beautiful winter setting, giving guests everything they need to cosy up and get into the festive spirit!”
Other screenings include Christmas standards like Miracle on 34th Street, Love Actually, The Muppet Christmas Carol and Home Alone (1 & 2). Plus, some Christmas romcoms like The Holiday and Last Christmas. But if cheesy classics aren’t your thing, there are plenty of alternative festive movies to enjoy. What about Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas? Or how about… Gremlins?
Of course, there’s only one fill we’ve got our eyes on – starring the man who seems bigger than Santa this year – How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Tickets for most films start at £10.50, with a range of festive refreshments available at Luna Cinema, including hot chocolate and mulled wine.
