The Best Winter Pop Up Film Screenings 2017

The Best Winter Pop Up Film Screenings 2017

13 November 2017 | Nicola Freedman

Binge-watching festive films one after another, curled up inside, is one of the best parts of the holiday season. However, for the ultimate festive experience don’t miss your chance to enjoy a unique film screening at some of the UK’s best winter pop ups. Spaces are expected to fill up quickly, so make sure to book sooner rather than later!

Pop Up Cinema, Glasgow

See your favourite film, and support a noble cause as Deafblind Scotland hosts two pop-up cinema events in Glasgow this winter. Catch a screening of ‘Love Actually’ or ‘Elf’ and enjoy a glass of prosecco, popcorn and a selection box. Better yet, all proceeds go directly to Deafblind Scotland, which has been raising awareness and serving the deafblind community across Scotland for over 25 years.

Deafblind Scotland’s Pop Up Cinema will screen Love Actually and Elf Friday 1 December and Thursday 14 December respectively at 200 St Vincent St, Glasgow G2 5RQ

Escape the winter chill and watch a stellar line up of festive films as part of Enchanted Cinema presents: A Christmas Film Festival. The fundraising project will show favourites including ‘Frozen’, ‘The Polar Express’, ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ and ‘Love Actually’ with all profits aiding East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. Make sure to also visit the all-day Christmas pop-up café serving hot drinks, mulled wines, mince pies and homemade cakes among other festive food delights.

Enchanted Cinema will take place on Saturday 16 December at The Robinson Theatre, Hills Road, Cambridge
 

Gourmet Picture Company, Bath

Enjoy a unique film and food experience this holiday season in Bath. For three weeks, the Gourmet Picture Company hosts evenings of classic Christmas films with specially designed menus from top chefs Rick Stein and Tom Kerridge. Guests will be served drinks upon arrival in the heated marquee before being shown to their seat – a red velvet, two-seater sofa no less. As you watch the film you can tuck into your gourmet, three-course meal which will be brought directly to you. While the line-up has yet to be confirmed, organisers have suggested that favourites such as ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Elf’ can be expected. Classic food and classic films – what more could you want?

Gourmet Picture Company will be running for a three-week period, from Thursday 14 December to Sunday 7 January within Bath’s Royal Victoria Park.
 

Pop Up Screens, London

While winter film screenings are taking place across the city, for a great night out don’t miss Pop Up Screens’ annual Cinema in the Snow. In addition to the usual suspects - Elf, Frozen and Love Actually – you will also be able to catch screenings of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and ‘La La Land’. Grab a drink and snack at the bar and arrive early to secure a prime seat.

Cinema in the Snow runs from Friday 8 – Sunday 24 December at Hackney Showroom, Hackney Downs Studios, Amhurst Terrace, London E8 2BT
 

Bristol Film Festival

Enter a snowy New York themed winter wonderland in Bristol this Christmas, and enjoy a day of festive films. While sessions for the ‘Elf’ screenings have already been snapped up, fear not! There are still tickets to the original, heart-warming classic ‘Miracle on 34th Street’, and the anti-Christmas film, ‘Die Hard.’ While seating is provided at all events free of charge, for an additional price, beanbags are available in premium spots.

Bristol Film Festival’s festive screenings will run from Sunday 17 – Thursday 28 December at The Passenger Shed, Station Approach, Bristol, BS1 6QH
