Christmas is coming early this year at Coventry’s Showcase Cinema as it prepares to show the festive classic Home Alone on the big screen.
For one day only, on Sunday October 25, Showcase Cinema de Lux at Walsgrave will be screening the UK’s favourite Christmas blockbuster, giving film fans the chance to start the season of goodwill early and in style.
Home Alone first hit the big screen in 1990 and stars a young Macaulay Culkin in the lead role as eight-year-old Kevin MacCallister who is mistakenly left at home alone while his mum, dad and family head out of town on holiday.
Kevin has to protect the family home from con men (Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern) who plan on robbing the MacCallister residence.
Alongside enjoying Home Alone on the big screen, moviegoers will be given an extra festive treat with a free bag of chocolate to enjoy during the film, included in the ticket price.
Mark Barlow, general manager of Showcase Cinemas UK, said: “This year has been tough on everyone and, with Christmas looking to be very different for 2020, we wanted to invite film fans to start the season earlier than ever before and join us for some much needed festive fun.
“We’re thrilled to be able to show Home Alone as every year it has consistently tops the polls as the nation’s favourite Christmas movie. So, we couldn’t think of a better film to bring to the big screen in Coventry.”
Tickets are on sale now at a cost of £5 and can be booked here.
