Get into the Christmas spirit with festive films like Emilia Clarke's 'Last Christmas', and of course, the quintessential christmas flick, 'Home Alone'. Moonlight Cinema's fan favourite programme will also feature two of the biggest Christmas blockbusters ever: 'Elf', and 'Love Actually'.
Moonlight dishes out some of the biggest cult classics spanning over the past few decades. See 'Dirty Dancing', 'The Greatest Showman', and special 20th anniversary screenings of 'Bring It On' and 'The Matrix'.
