‘Tis the season!
By Afro (follow her on Twitter: @graphiclondoner)
For many of us, this month offers the happy opportunity to indulge ourselves in all our favourite Christmas movies. This is why our picks this month include plenty of cheesy Hollywood classics as well as vintage Christmassy films. Put on a warm jumper, defy the bad weather and get ready to enjoy a nice film with a cup of hot chocolate!
The Big Chill House offers a complimentary Jameson cocktail and bag of popcorn on arrival. Sit comfortably on giant beanbags, director’s chairs and retro recliners and enjoy a childhood-favourite ‘Home Alone’ for only £3! Two days later Hackney Wicked Women WI offer mince pies and 2-for-1 mulled wine glasses. Can you resist a date with your girlfriends to watch Bridget Jones Diary? Think about ending the night with free cocktails in one of the bars that support the new girls-only mobile app!
PS. As per the usual, click on the titles for more information on venues and times. Most of the films have a free entrance (check brackets when it’s not the case) but for some of them you will need to book your place in advance so hurry up!
