On top of this they’re delighted to host a Christmas pop-up shop that’ll help you find the perfect gift for your film fan friends, stocking a range of excellent gift ideas from T-Shirts, Tote Bags, Prints and of course Light House Gift Memberships. Yippee-Ki-Yay!

Dec 12th 5.45pm 丨Dec 14th 6pm丨Dec 17th 6.30pm
Dec 20th 1pm丨Dec 21st 2pm丨Dec 22nd 1.30pm 丨Dec 23rd 6pm

Our favourite outrageously over-enthusiastic elf, Buddy is here again this year to spread Christmas cheer to even the most curmudgeonly cotton-headed ninny-muggins’ out there! And join us on Dec 9th for a screening of the film followed by big screen Elfeoke party!


It’s a Wonderful Life
Dec 8th 8.30pm 丨Dec 11th 6pm丨Dec 20th 3.30pm 丨 Dec 13th 8.30pm
Dec 21st 18.30pm丨Dec 23rd 3pm丨 Dec 23rd 8pm

I’m sure we’re not alone in feeling that Christmas does not truly kick off until we’ve watched Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life at least once. One of the most emotionally resonant and beautifully realised films of all time gives James Stewart the defining role of his career as George Bailey, a man who finds happiness when all his carefully laid out life plans fall by the wayside.


Bad Santa
Dec 3rd 10.30pm丨 Dec 12th 7.40pm丨Dec 16th 10.30pm

Billy Bob Thornton excels as nasty piece of work, Willie, an utter misanthrope posing as a department store Santa in order to pull off a robbery. The depths of his unpleasantness and depravity seemingly know no bounds, which makes for a wickedly funny comedy and the perfect antidote to some of the more saccharine Christmas offerings.


The Polar Express
Dec 17th 2pm丨Dec 19th 1pm

Can you ever have too much Tom Hanks? The Polar Express proves that the answer is no. Playing no less than six different roles in this animated classic, Hanks is the heart and soul of this gorgeous 3D Christmas fairy-tale.


Miracle on 34th Street
Dec 8th 6pm丨Dec 18th 1pm 丨 Dec 19th 3.30pm 丨Dec 20th 6pm

Starring Maureen O’Hara and a very young Natalie Wood who befriends a department store Santa, believing himself to be the actual Santa Claus. This gorgeous Christmas fable is newly remastered and sure to be a glorious watch on the big screen.


The Muppets Christmas Carol
Dec 3rd 2pm 丨Dec 18th 3.30pm 丨Dec 21th 12pm

We all love Dickens’ A Christmas Carol but we love it even more when The Muppets take over and sprinkle their energetic tunes and inimitable sense of humour to the classic tale. Join us for the most fun you can possibly have in Victorian London and of course you’re welcome to sing along!


Jingle All The Way
Dec 4th 4pm 丨Dec 18th 5.45pm 丨 Dec 22nd 8.45pm

Would you take on Arnie in the pursuit of Turbo-Man, the most sought-after Christmas toy of the year? No, we wouldn’t either. But Sinbad did, way back in 1996 with hilarious results. Catch ‘90s Christmas classic Jingle All The Way on the big screen this Christmas.


Love Actually
Dec 7th 8.30pm 丨Dec 11th 3.15pm 丨Dec 20th 8.30pm 丨Dec 22nd 6pm

After a string of sold out screenings last year, we’re bringing back seasonal favourite Love Actually. With an incredible cast of some of Britain’s most celebrated talent including Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley and Colin Firth. Get ready to celebrate Christmas and don’t forget the tissues!


Santa Claus: The Movie
Dec 10th 3pm 丨Dec 21st 4pm

This is the delightful story of a master toymaker who discovers a magical kingdom of elves at the North Pole where he is entrusted with special powers to become Santa Claus! There he meets Patch, an eager-to-please elf who becomes mixed up with a dastardly tycoon’s (a truly horrible John Lithgow) plans to take over Christmas!


Home Alone
Dec 4th 6pm 丨Dec 11th 1pm 丨 Dec 17th 4.15pm 丨Dec 22nd 3.45pm

Ah, Kevin McAllister – after 25 years, his antics never lose their hilarity. Not everyone would have the nerve to stand up to Joe Pesci but young Macauley Culkin takes him on with a series of genius, innovative, and increasingly painful DIY techniques in the classic comedy for all the family.


The Apartment
Dec 31st 5pm

“Shut up and deal” – if only ever New Year’s Eve could end as perfectly as it does at the end of Billy Wilder’s 1960 classic. Jack Lemmon plays a shy office worker whose downtown apartment becomes popular with the executives as a place to bring their mistresses.  He uses this to climb the corporate ladder, until he falls in love with Shirley MacLaine’s luminous Fran Kubelick, his boss’s mistress.


Cinema Book Club: About A Boy
Dec 19 6.30pm

The Christmas screening this year is About A Boy, based on the novel by Nick Hornby and starring Hugh Grant and a very young Nicholas Hoult. Not strictly a Christmas film but a certain yuletide favourite tune does form a large part of the story. Who can forget Santa’s Super Sleigh?!


Hollywood Babylon: Batman Returns
Dec 9th 10.45pm

It’s Christmas and Hollywood Babylon are using that as an excuse to make their argument for Batman Returns as one of the most underrated, weirdest, and flat-out entertaining superhero movies ever made. The film that truly explores the weird instincts and peculiar peccadilloes that might lead people to dress in rubber suits and hang out on rooftops and alleyways. A true Freudian freak fest of a superhero movie and also one of the strangest Christmas movies you’ve ever seen.


To complement the Naughty and Nice Christmas Season the Light House café and bar will be serving delicious menu of festive treats throughout the month of December.

Tickets are available now from the Light House Cinema website.
