UK cinema chain Vue has announced it will reopen 30 of its venues from 11 December ‘with more to be announced shortly’, revealing a slate of festive favourites to enjoy.

Cinemas were closed across England at the start of November, but are now able to reopen in areas that are currently under Tier 1 and Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions. The Rule of Six still applies in those regions, and mixing with other households inside ‘leisure and entertainment venues’ such as cinemas, is only allowed in Tier 1 areas.

The Christmas films on offer at Vue sites include Last Christmas, Nightmare Before Christmas, Love Actually, Gremlins, Elf, Die Hard, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Home Alone.

Wonder Woman 1984 will also be released in cinemas nationwide from 16 December, and early reactions are pointing to it being another hit for DC.

The Macaulay Culkin classic recently topped a poll of the best Christmas film moments with 23% of people polled by Vue naming the moment Kevin McCallister asks for his family back in time for Christmas as their top choice.
