A Magical Christmas Movie Experience 5

The Magical Christmas Movie Experience is returning to Manchester for Christmas 2019 featuring some of the best all-time festive films.

After the huge success of last year’s event, organisers are bringing The Magical Christmas Movie Experience back to Manchester with five hit films.

The event runs in Manchester city centre from Thursday 5 December until Sunday 8 December 2019 featuring The Holiday, Love Actually, Elf, Home Alone and Santa Clause The Movie.

The location of this year’s event will be announced shortly.

Once inside the Winter wonderland of Christmas movies, filmgoers will experience a fully immersive family experience including a live choir at every film screening, enchanted forest, Christmas themed refreshments and even a visit from Santa and his elves.

The Magical Christmas Movie Experience starts on Thursday 5 December with a 6pm screening of The Holiday, followed by Love Actually with a LIVE Gospel Choir at 9pm on the same evening.

Upon arrival, movie fans will be greeted by a live choir singing carols and festive songs, before taking a trip through the Narnia-inspired wardrobe of fur coats and transported into a magical enchanted Christmas forest, where the carols will also be heard.

The forest centrepiece is a 14ft Christmas tree, surrounded by snow drifts, snow dusted pine trees, Victorian lamp posts, and many more surprises – providing no end of festive backdrops for that ultimate Winter selfie!

After exiting the enchanted forest, guests will be welcomed to the food hall with wooden benches where festive refreshments, including food and drink, will be available to purchase. These include popcorn, candy floss, burgers, doughnuts, street food, hot chocolate, Christmas cocktails, and mulled wine.

Although indoors, visitors are encouraged to dress warm. Blankets will be provided, which will be donated to the city’s homeless community after the final screening.
