Winter wonderland cinema experience coming to Abbeydale Picture House
13 December 2019
The Village Screen is spreading festive cheer amongst Sheffield once again, as they return to Abbeydale Picture House with a festive feast of cinema screenings alongside the ultimate Christmas experience 20 - 21 December.
Transforming the iconic cinema into a Winter Wonderland, visitors will find themselves entering a grotto of festivities as they enter a world of twinkling lights and Christmas trees, the perfect setting for a series of seasonal screenings that should be on everyone’s advent calendar.
The celebrations kick off with that warm fuzzy feeling with Love Actually on Friday 20 December. The Richard Curtis directed film that follows the lives of eight very different couples dealing with their love lives in the build up to Christmas. With a brilliant ensemble cast including, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley and Colin Firth, and a sound track to match this is the ultimate festive romantic comedy for a pre-Christmas date night!
Saturday 21 December will host a bundle of Christmas crackers, starting off with a matinee screening of the hilarious tale of Buddy (Will Ferrell) as he sets off on to the mean streets of New York in search for his long-lost dad, in the family favourite, Elf. Later, in an evening screening, watch a young, fresh faced Macauley Culkin as he tackles and outsmarts a pair of clueless burglars to protect the family home in everyone’s favourite action packed, Christmas adventure film, Home Alone.
Ahead of each screening there is the opportunity to saviour the Winter Wonderland experience, which will include a live band, street food vendors and a bar that will serve a selection of drinks including some winter warmers throughout the evening.
