The following week, it’s the return of Academy Award nominated comedy ‘Bridesmaids’. Hitting cinemas back in 2011, the star-studded cast, featuring Kristen Wiig in the lead role, tells the story of Annie as she suffers a series of hilariously unfortunate events after being asked to serve as the maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding. 

‘Bridesmaids’ will screen on Friday 18th November. Get your tickets at https://www.showcasecinemas.co.uk/film-info/_bridesmaids

Love Actually

And a month before the big day, it’s time to get in the Christmas spirit as festive rom-com ‘Love Actually’ returns to the big screen on 25th November. Experience ten different stories of love through the eyes of screen legends Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson and more, as the tales intertwine in the lead up to Christmas Day.

“Whether you’re in the mood for a feel-good musical or a classic rom-com, films such as ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Mamma Mia!’ were meant to be enjoyed in the comfort of the cinema. We can’t wait to see our guests watch these classics in all their original big screen glory!”
