Backyard Cinema At Winterville: Elf
As Buddy says, ‘I like to smile, smiling’s my favourite'
Backyard Cinema have teamed up with Winterville to create the ultimate indoor, winter cinema. Set in the heart of the festival they have created their very own enchanted forest named "The Winter Night Garden", which can only be accessed via a secret tunnel of trees and allows you to watch your favourite winter movies in the cosy, secluded depths of a magical indoor woodland. Feast on high quality food and drink from before and during the screening which can be enjoyed in the comfort and shelter of the enchanted woodland bar. After he creeps out of his crib at the orphanage and into Santa's bag, Buddy is raised at the North Pole and works in Santa's workshop with the elves. Shocked when he finally discovers he's human, not elf, Buddy goes to New York in search of his father, who turns out to be in need of some Christmas cheer. Ferrell's man-child invites sympathy and sniggers, making this amusing for the adults. Sight gags and a Santa-centred story should keep the kids happy, too. "Funny and intelligently made, a film for kids and adults that's both sweet and sardonic." – San Francisco Chronicle "It's a bracingly subversive story told with tongue firmly in cheek." – BBC Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 37 minutes. The ticket grants you access to your chosen film and seating on either a giant beanbag or comfy sofa. Seating is on a first come first served basis.

"At the beginning of every December, my only advent ritual is to curl up in a blanket and laugh with Buddy on a cold day."
