Get in the Christmas spirit with Thameside Theatre

12 November 2019

You can get into the Christmas spirit early with a trio of classic festive family films being screened at Thameside Theatre on Saturday 23 November.

As well as being family friendly with something for all ages to enjoy, the screenings are also excellent value costing just £1 for each ticket for both children and adults.

The series of films begins with 'Mickey’s Christmas Carol', which is based on the Charles Dickens novel but with a Disney twist. In dreary London on Christmas Eve, miserly Scrooge goes to work in his counting house where also resides his only employee, Bob Cratchit.

The next film sees the coming of the dark, 'Jack Frost'! He is the personification of winter, a human form of winter weather, so grab your woolly hats and scarves and come to the theatre for a chilling experience.

Completing the trio we have 'Elf', taking you on a journey to the North Pole where Buddy is raised as an Elf. Unable to shake that feeling he doesn’t fit in, Buddy travels to New York to find his real dad.

The full film times are:

  • Mickey’s Christmas Carol (rating U) from midday
  • Jack Frost (rating PG) from 2pm
  • Elf (rating PG) from 7pm
