December is almost here which means it’s time to get the Christmas jumpers on, put the tree up and start rewatching all the favourite festive films. 

And whether you prefer the old classics like White Christmas or the modern classics like Elf, it’s always better to watch them on the big screen – which you can do this winter at Vue cinemas. 

The schedule at Manchester’s two Vue cinemas, located at Quayside shopping centre Salford Quays and the Printworks in the city centre, includes a whole range of Christmas films, like Jim Carrey’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Santa Claus: The Movie and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Mike Anton, General Manager of Vue Manchester Printworks said: ‘Christmas is all about spending quality time with friends and family, creating treasured moments to last a lifetime. We’re glad to be marking the merry occasion with a line-up of some of the most iconic and beloved Christmas classics, specially curated to provide the gift of Big Screen Entertainment this year.’
