Naughty or nice — festive film treats at the Pálás Cinema

We can't say it is Christmas time until we are cheering on Kevin McCallister’s New York hijinks in Home Alone 2, getting lost watching Jimmy Stewart running around Bedford Falls in It's A Wonderful Life or witnessing John McClane singlehandedly taking on Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

Honouring Hollywood’s golden era, Pálás Programmer William Fitzgerald has curated a line-up of beloved black and white classics including, The Bishop's Wife, The Little Shop Around The Corner, screwball comedy Christmas In Connecticut and the original Miracle On 34th Street.

Other festive favourites planned will include Elf, The Muppets Christmas Carol and Love Actually. Special screenings include the Die Hard Nakotomi Plaza Office Christmas Party, a dog-friendly screening of Elf, and a live-streamed presentation of the Royal Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker.

There will be delectable treats like mulled wine and hot chocolate on offer in the bar - the perfect seasonal sprinkle on-top of your Christmas cinema experience!

On planning the season, Pálás Programmer William Fitzgerald said: “Miracle on 34th Street. The Shop Around the Corner. It’s a Wonderful Life. Was the post-war era the golden age of the Christmas movie? I think so. With master directors like Lubitsch and Capra, and stars like James Stewart and Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck and Maureen O’Hara, let these films bring you renewed hope at the end of 2022.

And for a stocking stuffer, we’ve got Kevin McAllister and the Sticky Bandits, Buddy the Elf, the Muppets and John McClane all making a return to Pálás for the season.”
