Pop Up Cinema Goes All Christmassy

Trade in your sofas and Terry’s Chocolate oranges this Christmas for popcorn, snow and a festive screening in the iconic Pop Up Screens’ Christmas grotto

The Legendary Pop Up Screens that saw Londoners enjoying blockbusters throughout summer is back to see us through the Christmas period from the 8th– 24th December. Hackney Showroom in East London will be unrecognisible after it undergoes the Pop Up Screen Christmas treatment.  Doors are done away with, instead the audience will enter through a magical wardrobe and arrive in a winter wonderland lined with fir trees, dusted with snow and mulled wine on tap.

This year’s repertoire aims to bring the wonder of Christmas to people of all ages in an unforgettably festive surrounding. Classics include the likes of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, Home Alone, Love Actually, Miracle On 34th Street, and of course Elf.  These will be interspersed with the more recent Oscar approved La La Land, Disney’s hugely popular Frozen and the comically acclaimed Bad Santa.

In this snow filled winter wonderland, audiences will of course find popcorn from Drum and Kernel, as well as handmade brownies, craft beer, pimped hot chocolate and lovely festive mulled wine (It’d be rude not to). Pop Up Screens founder David Leydon said: “Christmas is our chance to do something special and to build an experience for our audience.  When you were 5, you wanted to climb into your wardrobe and find something amazing at the back of it – now you finally can!” 

Children’s ticket prices start from £10 and adults from £20.

Tickets are now on sale at WWW.POPUPSCREENS.CO.UK
