Pillow Cinema: The Muppets Christmas Carol
It's the most wonderful time of the year
The Pillow Cinema have made it their mission to turn your movie nights into unforgettable experiences. After a glorious summer of screenings they now take their magic to the beautiful Sutton House, a stunning Tudor home run by The National Trust in the heart of Hackney. Filled with oak-panelled rooms and charming original features, it’s the perfect setting for cosying up with a movie and a loved one this winter. For this one, it's the Muppets telling of Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol. Wretched miser (Michael Caine) is so mean "even the vegetables don't like him" – yeah, we can quote every line of this film. Follow Gonzo and Rizzo as they narrate the tale of Scrooge's redemption from greedy money-lender to upstanding figure of the community – with lots of laughs, musical numbers and plenty of guest appearances from all your favourite Muppets along the way. Certificate: U. Runtime: 1 hour 19 minutes. Doors to Sutton House open half an hour before the event. The film will start at the advertised time, and no trailers will be shown in advance. The fatboy bean bags are huge, and seat one person spaciously or two people snuggled up. If lounging's not really your thing, you can also grab a more traditional seat. Either way, there'll be blankets and cushions available for all.
