Home Alone

Part of Winter Pop-up Cinema

What happens when an eight-year-old boy is left alone over the holidays? See the 1990 film starring Macaulay Culkin at a screening in our pop-up cinema.

The McCallister family is preparing for a Christmas vacation in Paris, France. But in the rush to leave for the airport, they forget the youngest in the family, eight-year-old Kevin.

Kevin relishes being home alone at first, but then he finds out that two burglars, Harry and Marv, are planning to rob his house on Christmas Eve. How can Kevin stop the burglars and bring them to justice?

At our hidden cinema inside the colourful Circus Bar tent, nestle down in a bean bag and enjoy a holiday classic with a hot chocolate or mulled wine and snacks.
