The holiday season is synonymous with many traditions, and for movie enthusiasts, that often includes revisiting timeless classics that capture the magic and joy of Christmas. This December, Apollo Cinema is bringing the festive spirit to the screen with heartwarming holiday movies with a focus on three iconic films: "Home Alone," "Christmas Vacation," and "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947) in addition to their celebrated All-You-Can-Eat Cereal and Cartoons event.

Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party December Edition! 
It is a special time when kids and kids-at-heart get to relive the exciting Saturday Morning ritual of non-stop retro cartoons, and binge on the multi-coloured sugary cereals that used to be a part of every “balanced” breakfast!

December 9, 10 and 12
Christmas Vacation (1989):
For those seeking a dose of holiday hilarity, "Christmas Vacation" delivers in spades. Directed by John Hughes, this installment of the Griswold family saga follows Clark Griswold, played by Chevy Chase, as he attempts to create the perfect Christmas for his family. From tangled Christmas lights to an unexpected visit from eccentric relatives, the film is a riotous exploration of the trials and tribulations of holiday celebrations. With its memorable one-liners and chaotic family dynamics, "Christmas Vacation" has become a laugh-out-loud classic that perfectly captures the unpredictable nature of the season.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947):
Stepping back in time to the golden era of Hollywood, "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947) is a heartwarming tale that has stood the test of time. Directed by George Seaton, the film tells the story of Kris Kringle, a department store Santa Claus who claims to be the real Santa. As he faces skepticism and a courtroom trial, the film explores themes of faith, belief, and the true spirit of Christmas. Edmund Gwenn's portrayal of Kris Kringle earned him an Academy Award, and the film remains a cherished classic that captures the magic of the holiday season in a way that resonates with audiences of all ages.

December 20
Home Alone (1990) with CHEESE PIZZA!
"No place like home for the holidays" takes on a whole new meaning in the beloved classic "Home Alone." Directed by Chris Columbus and starring Macaulay Culkin as the resourceful Kevin McCallister, this film has become a holiday staple for generations. When Kevin is accidentally left behind by his family during Christmas vacation, he must defend his home from two burglars using ingenious booby traps. The film's mix of slapstick humor, heartwarming moments, and the joy of family reconciliation make it a perennial favorite that continues to bring laughter to households worldwide.
This showing comes with a slice of cheese pizza!!!

These Merry Movies will be family crowd pleasers!
