To mark the countdown to Christmas, Vue Bolton is bringing some of the most beloved holiday classics back to the big screen this festive season.

Providing a Yuletide treat for film fans and families alike, this year marks milestone anniversaries for a variety of iconic Christmas films - all returning to the big screen at Vue Bolton.

Kermit and company’s legendary adaptation of The Muppet’s Christmas Carol returns to mark 30 years of one of the most unforgettable retellings of Charles Dickens’ Victorian tale, screening from 15 December.

Both films are returning to Vue Bolton from 24 November.

Also celebrating two decades since becoming a Christmas comedy classic is Will Ferrell’s Elf.
