The Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield is renowned for its festive programme of events and this year is no different.
This year, the theme is Naughty or Nice, and The Lighthouse are offering all the classics but with a bonus Tim Burton duo (Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas) to ease you into festivities.
So whether you’re feeling naughty (beer and Die Hard) or nice (candy canes and Elf) or somewhere in between (mulled wine, mince pies and It’s a Wonderful Life), we’ve got you covered.
