Tickets are now on sale for two screenings of classic Christmas movies planned for the run-up to the big day, promising you two evenings of festive fun this December.
Film-lovers can add a bit of sparkle to their Christmas countdown with tickets to one of the two vintage cinema evenings planned for Sunday, December 14, and Saturday, December 20.
Majestic Cinema manager Tom Cundy said: “I’m personally very excited for our vintage nights this Christmas.
“We wanted to offer two evenings as the demand for tickets for the previous evenings was so high!
“The feedback from the previous evenings has been amazing.
“We’re always looking at ways we can make everyone’s experience that little bit more special.”
The first evening will give audiences a chance to see Miracle on 34th Street, starring the late Richard Attenborough, on the big screen. The film will be shown in 35mm, which is extremely rare these days.
This 1994 film is about six-year-old Susan, who has doubts about childhood’s most enduring miracle – Santa Claus. But after meeting a special department store Santa who’s convinced he’s the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all – something to believe in.
The following weekend, the Majestic will be showing It’s A Wonderful Life, which is back by popular demand.
This 1946 American Christmas comedy-drama is considered one of the most loved films in American cinema and has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season.
An angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.
Mr Cundy added: “We also know that in the run up to Christmas everyone is watching their budget so tickets are only £5 each. The tickets have already started to sell fast for both nights, so I’d recommend booking your ticket before it’s too late! All of our vintage evenings have sold out very quickly in the past so make sure you pre-book!”
Both evenings are black-tie events and there will be plenty of mince pies for everyone. There will also be a professional photographer, discounted beers and wines, and even a chance to win a Christmas hamper in the raffle.
Mr Cundy said: “Both films start at 7.45pm, although we’d love everyone to arrive early to enjoy the atmosphere!”
