It wouldn’t be Christmas without it.
Triskel is celebrating the festive season by adding a new film to their traditional line-up of festive movies.
Home Alone joins everyone’s favourites The Muppet Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Die Hard at Triskel Cinema from Friday, December 16th to Friday, December 23rd.
“Watching these classic films has become part of people’s Christmas traditions over the years.” says Chris O’Neill, Head of Cinema at Triskel.
“It is important to us to keep this tradition alive and allow people to lose themselves in the adventures of Kermit, Miss Piggy and friends, cheer on John McClane retaking the Nakatomi Building, and join Kevin McCallister and George Bailey in understanding the importance of family and community.”
Here’s the run-down…
Beloved classic It’s a Wonderful Life is an enduring hit and looks at an idea we’ve all had: what if we were never born? Fantastically performed by Jimmy Stewart and offering a powerful message on humanity, there’s a reason people mark this as a classic.
A real treat for the younger audience, The Muppet Christmas Carol offers a zanier version of Charles Dickens much-adapted story.
There’s an ongoing debate over whether or not Die Hard is, in fact, a Christmas movie or ‘just’ a movie set at Christmas. The writer of the popular film confirmed it is a Christmas classic and even provided a checklist comparing it to White Christmas.
The new film in this year’s festive line-up is Home Alone, the film that made Macauley Culkin a child star and still provides laughs more than 30 years after its original release.
“If you’re looking for more of a musical Christmas, we recommend coming along to the second concert in the Spotlight Chamber Music Series on Saturday, December 17th, featuring soprano Anna Devin and pianist Fiachra Garvey who will include an assortment of the most beloved Christmas carols in their programme for this lunchtime concert.” adds Gillian Hennessy, Head of Marketing & Development.
Tickets for Christmas Movies at Triskel and the Spotlight Chamber Music Series concert are on sale now from triskelartcentre.ie.
