9 places in Liverpool to watch Christmas films over the festive season

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without watching a Christmas classic film, and even better if it’s on the big screen.

Lots of venues in Liverpool are having special screenings of Christmas films in the run-up to the big day, so here are 9 places where you can take your Buddy to see one …

Philharmonic Hall

Christmas Films

The Phil has got a trio of Christmas movies lined up this year, starting with The Muppet Christmas Carol on Saturday December 3 at 2.30pm, then Meet Me in St Louis starring Judy Garland on Sunday December 18 at 7.30pm, and two screenings of all-time tear-jerker It’s A Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve at 11am and 3pm.

St George’s Hall

St George's Quarter

Luna Winter Cinema has created a fabulous festive setting in the main hall of St George’s where you’ll find a programme of Christmas films from Saturday December 10 to Friday December 23. It’s got Love Actually, Home Alone and Home Alone 2, The Holiday, Elf, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Die Hard, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Bridget Jones’s Diary, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Greatest Showman sing-a-long and It’s A Wonderful Life.

British Music Experience

Christmas Films

Get down to the BME at Cunard Building if your number one Christmas film is Scrooged because it’s showing it on Thursday December 15 at 7.30pm. For anyone who needs reminding of this 80s favourite, Bill Murray plays a self-centred TV exec (the updated Ebenezer) who gets given a lesson in the true meaning of Christmas by three visiting ghosts. It’s got a great soundtrack of its time too.

The Metquarter’s going all-out to celebrate Christmas this year with an artisan’s market, festive workshops and seasonal specials at GPO – and there’ll be Christmas films on at Everyman Cinema. Settle down with burgers, pizza and cocktails, and watch Elf, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Home Alone, The Polar Express, Die Hard, Love Actually, It’s A Wonderful Life, The Holiday, A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story, and Royal Opera House’s beautiful festive ballet The Nutcracker.

Liverpool Cathedral

Christmas Film

The cathedral will be hosting a very special screening of animated family favourite The Snowman accompanied by a live orchestra on Thursday December 22 from 5pm to 6.30pm. Alongside The Snowman, audiences can also see The Flight Before Christmas – the new Shaun the Sheep film staged with a live orchestra for the first time. Shaun’s seasonal excitement gets derailed when a farmhouse raid to get stockings for the Flock goes wrong.

Plaza Cinema, Crosby

The Plaza’s screening of It’s A Wonderful Life on December 3 is now sold out, but there’s still chance to catch another not-so-often screened Christmas film, this time from the 80s, because Gremlins is on December 8 at 7.45pm. It’s going to be a Christmas special night all round, with DJ Nick Gartland playing 80s tunes from 6.45pm to get everyone in the mood.
