Elf, Love Actually, and Home Alone are just some of the classic Christmas films hitting the big screen at a hidden cinema in Manchester next month.

With the nights drawing in, the temperatures dropping by the day, and the most wonderful time of the year now firmly in our sights, film fans and families looking for some wholesome festive fun are being invited to get themselves down to one of Manchester’s most popular hotels in the lead-up to the big day itself.

King Street Townhouse‘s very-own exclusive cinema will be screening a jam-packed lineup of fan-favourite festive films over three weekends in December to celebrate Christmas in style.

The Christmas screenings will be taking over the little cinema from Saturday 9 – Tuesday 26 December.

With a marathon of three films set to be screened on each day of the event next month, the Christmas screenings schedule kicks off on Saturday 9 December at 2pm with the absolute cult-classic that is Elf – which is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its release this year – all before you can sit down to watch Love Actually, and Home Alone on the same day.


Other festive favourites on the lineup across other weekends include It’s a Wonderful Life, The Holiday, The Muppet Christmas Carol, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and Bad Santa.

The magic of Christmas is evening continuing past the big day itself, as three of the best-loved festive flicks, Elf, Home Alone, and Love Actually, will all be screened again on Boxing Day, just in case you weren’t able to catch them the first time round.


If you didn’t know King Street Townhouse even had a cinema, don’t worry – that’s all part of the fun.

The vintage-style cinema isn’t always one that everyone’s familiar with, as it’s tucked away in the hotel’s cellars and seats only a handful of people at a time for the ultimate viewing experience, but it’s well worth a visit – and this Christmas couldn’t be a more ideal time.

Tickets to each of the Christmas screenings are now on sale, and start at just £16.50 each.


You can also complete your seasonal experience with festive-themed cocktails, popcorn, pick n mix, and a whole host of other treats beforehand too, if you’d like.
