Movie Night.jpg

Join Richard Soames and Simon Lukacs for a night of comedy celebrating (and deservedly mocking) the films we love (and hate), with the best comedians around!

This month get ready to call for back up in Nakatomi Plaza, booby trap your uncle's abandoned New York home and watch Arnie punch a reindeer, because we're kicking things off with a Christmas extravaganza! From Home Alone to It's A Wonderful Life, from Gremlins to Bad Santa, and from Die Hard to... erm... Ernest Saves Christmas, the Yuletide season has provided us with a plethora of iconic movie moments. Now it's time to relive those moments for better or for much, much worse.

So crack open the eggnog, get those chestnuts roasting, and share some Christmas cheer with the following festive funsters:

£6 Advance /  £8 Door.
