A festive film screening of Tim Burton's Christmas classic
The odds for a white Christmas in London have dramatically increased thanks to Pop Up Screens. Head to Notting Hill's 20th Century Theatre and step through their magic wardrobe to discover a secret cinema surrounded by snow. Rumour has it that a bar filled with an abundance of mulled wine, hot chic, brownies and popcorn also lies within. Only one way to find out right? For this screening, catch the only film that's as appropriate at Halloween as it is at Christmas. Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas tells the tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King. Depressed with his life in Halloweenland, things turn around once he discovers Christmastown. With excellent use of stop-motion animation, this is a stunningly original and visually engaging work of art. "Of all the new Halloween films, only this one has the power to truly haunt our dreams." – Rolling Stone "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas has a grotesque charm, a pie-eyed magic." – Chicago Tribune Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 16 minutes. Doors open at 7:30pm. Film starts at 8:30pm. Seating is unallocated, but the screen is on a stage so it's hard to get a bad view.
"A fun house of funereal glamour."
