CHRISTMAS is to come early at one Southampton cinema.

Showcase Cinema de Lux Southampton is gifting customers a winter treat this October, with a day full of Christmas movies to boost that festive spirit.

It means Christmas lovers can enjoy all their festive favourites two months before the big day.

Guests will be able to see four different Christmas classics on the big screen.

1946 classic It’s a Wonderful Life starring legendary actor James Stewart will be sure to have you running down the street yelling Merry Christmas, or perhaps Tom Hanks in Polar Express will have you yearning for Hot Chocolate.

Cinema-goers can also watch Will Ferrell playing one of Santa’s helpers lost in the big city in the hilarious Elf or see Kevin McAllister dealing with half-witted thieves in Home Alone.

Each film will be available on October 23 for just £5 a ticket.

Mark Barlow, UK General Manager for Showcase Cinemas, said: “It’s been a tough time for everyone these past 18 months, so Showcase Cinemas wants to bring some early festive fun as we start the countdown to the most wonderful time of the year.

“We’ve brought Christmas forward a couple of months so everyone can start to get into the Christmas spirit. We have picked four festive favourites and we’re looking forward to a busy day of Christmas fun in the middle of October.”

Tickets for the Christmas Movie Day are available to book via the Showcase Cinemas website now.
