It’s the season for great Christmas films and a special movie pop up is coming to London set in a winter-wonderland.
Time Out launches a season of classic yuletide movie screenings followed
by a festive knees-up to get movie-fans across the capital in the mood for Christmas.
‘Time Out Loves Christmas Movies’ will run from November 23rd to December 16th and tickets are now available for £17 at timeout.com/xmasmovies.
The curated line-up of classic Christmas films, hand-picked by Time Out editors, further includes the feel-good Miracle on 34th Street, the feel-not-so-good Bad Santa and Tim Burton’s animated masterpiece The Nightmare Before Christmas. There
will also be an exclusive preview of The Muppet Christmas Carol, before it is re-released in cinemas later in December for its 25th anniversary.
The screenings – programmed in collaboration with film distributor Park
Circus will be followed by a Christmassy party with lots of music and performers to get people in the festive spirit. There will be plenty of food and drink available to buy on site throughout the evening.
For the movie screenings, Time Out is taking over the new ‘Lost Rivers Elephant’ venue which has been constructed from recycled shipping containers in London’s Elephant and Castle. The space has a striking industrial vibe and will be
transformed into a tinsel-strewn, snow-covered winter-wonderland that will
get Londoners’ Instagram popping.
