Festive Film Starts Here


Taxonomy 1:

Posted December 1, 2015 by


“Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems in a place perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams. For the story you’re about to be told began with the holiday worlds of auld. Now you’ve probably wondered where holidays come from. If you haven’t I’d say it’s time you begun.” (Nightmare Before Christmas)

Christmas is coming and the camel’s getting fat… While all the kids are sleeping, The Nomad Cinema’s intrepid camel (lovingly called Lewis) is continuing its roam around London’s hidden locations and has found a brand new spot to pop-up in for a Christmas series of the most wonderful films for the holiday season. Nestled in the back streets of Belgravia and just a stone’s throw from London’s Victoria Station, discover Eccleston Place Courtyard.

A new addition and part of the continuing “Grosvenor Film Festival in association with Chestertons” and in partnership with Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, this hidden urban hideaway will be transformed for a four-day winter film fest, kitted out with a cosy, heated, weatherproof canopy, under which you’ll be nestling to watch some seasonal cinema gems, curled up in blankets on comfy chairs to keep toasty warm. There’ll also be piping hot festive meals from Madame Gautier, mince pies aplenty, mulled wine and hot chocolate – and marshmallows for toasting as seasonal music drifts through the air…

From yuletide silver screen classic It’s A Wonderful Life to alternative winter picks Gremlins and Die Hard and festive favourites Love Actually, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Elf, there’s something for every man, woman and child this Christmas, so join The Nomad Cinema at Eccleston Place Courtyard for a very special Nomad Noel!

£25 adult ticket includes hot food & a glass of mulled wine on arrival.
£15 child ticket includes a meal & a soft drink on arrival.
£10 child ticket includes the film only.
