The Luna Cinema have this week announced their largest ever festive cinema programme with over 120 screenings, a host of Christmas classics, and for the first time ever, both drive-in and indoor screenings.

The season kicks off in early November 2021 with the UK’s largest producer of outdoor cinema screenings taking to the road for a season of events in some of the UK’s most spectacular locations, including Kensington Palace, Battersea Arts Centre and even Brands Hatch.

“Ready or not, the winter season is upon us” says the Luna Cinema website of the event. “As the temperature begins to drop, there’s no better way of getting into the Christmas spirit than by cosying up to watch classic films alongside family and friends.”

The London leg of the festive cinema programme will focus on two venues with the Luna Cinema taking up residence at Kensington Palace on the 12th of December and the Battersea Arts Centre on the 14th of the month.

A host of festive classics will be shown during the season, with Love Actually, Home Alone, It’s A Wonderful Life, The Holiday, Elf, Frozen and Last Christmas in the programme. And for younger film fans, The Gruffalo, Stick Man, Zog and the iconic “The Snowman” should ensure that the kids go home happy, too.

And since it’s Christmas, the Luna Cinema are going all out to ensure that their events are fittingly seasonal with stunning lighting, festive dressing, snow, and giant Christmas trees at each venue.

A fantastic selection of Christmas-themed food and drink items will be available at each screening with limited edition Festive Boxes crammed full of sweet treats and the usual range of festive beverages including mulled wine and hot chocolate.

And for the first time in 2021, the company will be bringing their drive-in experience to their festive programme. The Luna Drive In Experience features a ‘bespoke in-car wireless speaker system,’ so audiences can hear the film in amazing full frequency, cinematic quality digital sound.

The founder of the Luna Cinema, George Wood, had this to say about the company’s festive programme: “Hot on the heels of a hugely successful summer outdoor cinema season, our upcoming Luna Winter Cinema run will take our total number of screenings this year to over five hundred. We couldn’t be more excited by this year’s winter season – there’s quite simply nothing like watching your favourite festive film to bring on that Christmas feeling.

For me, I always say that it doesn’t feel like Christmas until I’ve watched Home Alone! This year we will bringing every Christmas classic to the Luna big screen in both drive-in and our indoor themed settings. With great food and drink, stunning themed backdrops, and some very comfy new VIP sofas on offer, it promises to be our biggest and best Winter season ever!”

So, whether you are a Bah Humbug or dreaming of a white Christmas, if festive cinema is your thing, you’d better get yourself down to the Luna Cinema this holiday season!
