Steps to feeling Christmassy: putting up the tree, blasting out Mariah, mainlining mince pies...and of course the all-important festive trip to watch a Christmas classic on the big screen. Whether you prefer sentimental weepies, Christmas comedies or Bruce Willis taking on the baddies (Die Hard is a Christmas film, ok?), there’s nothing like sharing the experience of escaping to another world for a few hours with your loved ones?. Especially when that world is covered in decorations.
Shed a communal tear over It’s A Wonderful Life, laugh along at Elf with your fellow cotton-headed ninny mugginses, watch The Grinch destroy Christmas. No distractions, just plenty of festive joy.
