'Home Alone', 'Elf' and 'Die Hard' Are Returning To Cinemas For Christmas

'Home Alone', 'Elf' and 'Die Hard' Are Returning To Cinemas For Christmas

During the holiday season, it is almost mandatory to squeeze in watching as many of the classic Christmas films as you possibly can.

And it turns out, cinema chains across the country are set to help you in your quest, as many of them are set to show favourites including Elf, Home Alone and Die Hard in December.

Personally, we can't to see Kevin McAllister, aka Macauley Culkin, take down Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) on the big screen.

But the films showing vary according to which cinema you visit. Odeon is showing all three films and you can catch Die Hard on 3rd December, Elf on 7th December and Home Alone on 14th December in most of its cinema locations across the country, but they do vary so check locally.

Cineworld however is showing Elf on 4th December at most of its locations, whilst Vue is also showing the hilarious film, but has various dates stretching from 4th December through to 15th of the month. But again, check online at your local cinema location.

And if you haven't seen these movies, seriously where have you been?

Elf follows Buddy (Will Ferrell) who was raised to believe he's a festive sprite but is actually a human who found himself in the North Pole as a baby.

It follows him in his quest as he makes his way into the real world to hunt down his dad and struggles to adjust to a serious lack of Christmas cheer. There is only one word to describe this film and that is: hilarious.

Die Hard follows New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) who visits his estranged wife at her workplace for a party on Christmas Eve.

However, things turn nasty when terrorists show up. To be honest, the only festive thing about this movie is that is takes place on 24th December, but it remains a much-loved classic that everyone digs back out in the holiday season.

As fans will know, Home Alone centres on a little boy who is accidentally left home alone over the Christmas holidays.

When Kevin realises robbers are trying to steal from his family home, he makes elaborate plans to stop them in their tracks. Another funny flick that's a must-watch.

But whether you've seen them before or not, making a trip to the cinema will make a fabulously festive outing that will be nice and chilled out, in a month that is usually hectic and hungover-filled.

Saying that though, cinemas now serve booze at their concessions counters, so if you find yourself getting withdrawals, you can always treat yourself to a cheeky wine to drink during the movies.

Happy holidays!
