‘Twas the night before Black Friday, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse… Except for Christmas City’s little elves, who’ve been working hard on something for us to enjoy this festive season: a Christmas drive-in cinema!
Blessing us with bags full of Christmas spirit, the creators of Manchester’s sell-out ScareCity drive-in cinema are back again for the festive period – and this time, they have a huge array of festive favourites screening throughout the run up to Christmas. It’s like an advent calendar, except with super Christmassy, heart-warming movies that are sure to get you in the mood for a holly jolly Christmas.
Kicking off on November 26, guests can enter a winter wonderland with a candy cane forest, drive-in festive mail room, and dedicated Christmas karaoke area, before arriving at the main drive-in cinema. This section will be filled with festive movies, entertainment and live actors. Not only that, but you’ll be enjoying the show from the comfort of your own car, so no one can judge you for wrapping up in your fluffy PJs and slippers and going to town on mince pies.
If you’re not a kid yourself and just want to tap into your own inner child, the movies at this Christmas drive-in cinema are split out into ‘Naughty’ and ‘Nice’ screenings, with entertainment adapted for family-friendly audiences and adults who just love a bit of Christmas cheer. ‘Naughty’ screenings include Love Actually, Bad Santa and The Holiday, with ‘Nice’ screenings including classics such as The Polar Express, Elf and The Grinch. Tickets cost just £45 per vehicle, and you can pick up yours now.
