As the days draw shorter and the weather gets colder, it’s the perfect time for marveling at magical wintry landscapes on the big screen, inside the screen – so here’s how to have a winter adventure with the whole family that’s both enchanting AND cosy.
Coming up: Olaf’s Frozen Adventure
Disney haven conjured up a Christmas special starring Elsa, Anna, Olaf (of course) and our favourites from the original Frozen film for a 22 minute jaunt around Arendelle. Olaf’s Frozen Adventure follows everyone’s favourite snowman on a mission to discover the Christmas traditions of every family in the kingdom. We’re showing the brand new featurette for one weekend only (on 25 and 26 November) along with the original Frozen from just £4.99 – but you’ll have to be quick because tickets are selling fast.

Book ahead: The Nutcracker
What could possibly be more Christmassy than watching Christmas toys come to life under a Christmas tree one Christmas Eve? How about a sleigh ride through a snowy forest to a magical land of sweets with a sashaying Sugar Plum Fairy? This glittering ballet spectacle will be broadcast live to Vue from the Royal Opera House for one night only – and it’s the perfect way to introduce little ones to the beautiful art of dance.

Coming soon: The Man Who Invented Christmas
Long before J.K. Rowling, people in the 1800s had to make do with Charles ruddy Dickens. Luckily, he was actually quite a genius and penned our favourite festive story, A Christmas Carol. However, it didn’t come to him easily, as we see in The Man Who Invented Christmas, out 1 December, the Dickens biopic starring Dan Stevens that shows us how he came up with the story (lots of frantic pacing, it seems.) So unbelievably Christmassy it’ll be sure to get even the scroogiest among us in the mood for a mince pie.
Bah humbugs, be gone! Tickets for The Man Who Invented Christmas, out 1 December, available soon.
